Unreadable Book MN 1

In 1949 Bruno Munari first designed a series of “unreadable books,” works that definitively renounced textual communication in favor of aesthetic function alone.
Not simply a support for text, paper communicates a message through its format, color, cuts and their alternation. The elements that constitute the traditional book, such as the colophon and title page, are omitted, and reading becomes the cadenced unfolding of a musical composition, with ever-changing timbres in the alternation of pages.
