'R & D Book', a colouring book by Marti Guixe
The ‘R&D Book’ is large, entertaining and thought-provoking. It appeals to both adults and children alike. In typical Martí Guixé style, it is for doing rather than for reading. Its clear-cut simple graphics stimulate creativity, language and the imagination.
Children and adults can try their hand at science, mixing carrots with tomatoes, artichokes with ginger and raisins with mango, in the hunt for new shapes. Then hey presto! The new ingredients for experimental menus and vegetable or fruit salads are ready.
Marti Guixe was born in Barcelona in 1964. He studied Interior Design in Barcelona and then Industrial Design. He works for such companies as Camper, Chupa-Chups, Desigual, Droog Design, Saporiti and Watx. His work has been exhibited at MoMA, New York, the London Museum of Design, MACBA in Barcelona and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
‘R&D Book’ is his fifth for Corraini, after ‘Toy weapons’, ‘Blank Book’ , ‘Tattoo Book’, ‘Food Book’ and ‘Food Designing’.
