THE FABLE GAME by ENZO MARI

Enzo Mari is a designer and as such he designs many different types of things objects, furniture and books. The design of Il Gioco delle Favole from Edizione Corraini (or The Fable Game) is worth a place in this blog as it is a means of telling many, many stories.

It is a storybook in that it has illustrations, but it has no words and it hasn't got the layout of a book with a cover or pages. Six plates with two slots each, 45 animals and other elements such as the moon, plants or rocks, can be built and deconstructed as the story comes out of your imagination.
