Artist, writer, product designer, architect, graphic designer, illustrator, educator, and philosopher Bruno Munari created an enormously successful and utterly charming book in 1942 called "Le Macchine di Munari". Faithfully reprinted here, it contains instructions for building the most fantastical of mechanical structures, including a machine for taming alarm clocks, a lizard-driven engine for tired tortoises, a mechanism for sniffing artificial flowers, a humiliator for mosquitoes, a machine for playing the pipe even when you are not home, a machine for seeing the dawn before anyone else, and a tail wagger for dogs. The human being Munari is compelled to have a thousand eyes, in his nose and neck, in his shoulders, fingers, and backside. He revolts restlessly in a world that besieges him with stimuli that attack him from all directions. The programmatic wisdom of the precise sciences helps him to discover himself as an untiring resident of an expending universe. --Umberto Eco
