First published in Italy in 1956, Bruno Munari's In the Darkness of the Night tells the tale of an interconnected, intimate yet expansive journey across three settings---in the darkness, through a meadow, and into a mysterious cave---through a spellbinding combination of paper stocks, transparencies, cutouts, and simple but lively characters. Published by Edizioni Corraini.
Thanks to its intrinsic strength and the exceptional timelessness of the pictures, the book has now become a cult and a reference point in children's publishing. The different types of paper used, simplicity of the images and holes that echo the story lead the reader along the mysterious path of the "darkness of the night".

Corraini Edizioni is a publishing house and an art gallery, as well as a space for experimentation and research: a “publishing workshop” open to artists, illustrators and designers, from both Italy and abroad, to create books and art and design projects. Our work with Bruno Munari stands out among our numerous collaborations; he was a versatile artist and designer who worked steadily with Corraini for many years, giving us the idea of a workshop that is always open to creativity and imagination.
