The Zoo of Signs - Mauro Bellei
The Zoo of Signs is a challenging project consisting of a beautiful box set that contains a book, ten cards with die-cut shapes, and ten envelopes. The project helps children read words and understand images. It is made up of imaginary animals that can turn into many different figures by rearranging the symbols and shapes that compose them. The book tells the story of both the animals and the visitors: animals are drawn on the right-hand side, the visitors on the left.
This book encourages children to experiment with signs and shapes to create complex images and figures - in this case, animals like a penguin or a dolphin, a rhinoceros or a horse.
Mauro Bellei is a renowned architect and stage designer who also organizes art workshops for children.
