Designer of the week: Enzo Mari

"The fable game is made up of six color plates, almost like a magic pack of cards with forty-five animal pictures on them, plus the sun, the moon, an umbrella, a big boot, a cage, eight trees, a tree trunk, nine bamboo canes, five stones, an apple, a pile of earth, a nest and two eggs, all the things that appear in classic fairy tales. Children can make up stories by mixing the plates to create countless variations. This revolutionary design allows children to make up their own stories, they can tell them to adults or other children."
