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.
In addition to the already established art gallery, Corraini Edizioni's publishing work ranges between design, art and illustration, often blurring the boundaries between the different disciplines. Naturally, given the association with Munari, particular attention is given to artists’ books for children.
When working on each editorial project, content and packaging are thought of as complementary aspects of the same project. Each volume is the result of reflection on every aspect of form and content (size, type of paper and material, binding, cover, type of printing, graphics, selection of texts and images), in close collaboration with the author so as to find a harmonious editorial solution bringing concreteness to the idea-project.
