    Bruno Munari. Gigi Cerca Il Suo Berretto. [Milan, Italy]: Mondadori, [1945].

    First edition. Large quarto. Ten pages, incorporating the pastedowns. Profusely illustrated in color.

    Stiff illustrated cardboard covers backed in a thin strip of white cloth and saddle-stapled. Minor wear at the corners and the tail of the spine. One small chip to the rear bottom edge. Very minor stain at the top edge of the rear cover, else a fine copy.

    Number 7 in I Libri Munari, and the last volume actually produced in a planned series of ten installments. A form of moveable book in which each illustration incorporates a flap which hides further illustrated details, revealing them only when the flap is turned. Munari began designing children's books such as this towards the end of his career as a press graphic designer for the Mondadori editor.
