Tales of Stone and More



This remarkably clever and endearing children's book brings Arte Povera to life for kids, telling the "Tales of Stone" in short passages that describe the work of artists like Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, and others who use stone, glass, wood and fabric in their work. It teaches that stones have brains, that clothes thrown in a room can become a rainbow and that trees are more glorious than skyscrapers. The text and pictures will fire the imagination of readers young and old, inspiring them to make art in their bedrooms and backyards from household and neighborhood detritus.
