A classic by a great American graphic designer and illustrator, who revolutionized the image and style of Italian publishing in the 1970s: John Alcorn. A small book aimed at children: a hymn of love for books and reading, words, literature: the intelligence that espresses the best of what man is and can do since ten thousand years ago. A gem of irresistible beauty - for its design, illustrations and spirit - that challenges the pervasive dominance of the new technologies and reaffirms the charm without equal of the books.
