Enzo Mari: The Fable Game

Il giocco delle favole (The fable game) by Enzo Mari, Danese, Milano, 1965 (This is the third variant, from 1971. Lithography in 12 colours on plastified cardboard sheets, 9 X 18 inches). The Fable Game is currently in its 5th printing, reissued by Edizioni Corraini (at 6 X 12.5 inches).
It’s not a book to read or to leaf through but to make, unmake and build up: a never ending adventure, played and invented anew each time by the endless possibilities at hand.

Did Enzo Mari design anything that isn't lovely? Very much enjoying your blog, by the way.
