In 1960, Italian artist Bruno Munari released Circle and Square. Followed over a decade later by Triangle, the trio of books is an in-depth examination of these three shapes and their specific qualities — the circle’s relation to “the divine,” the square as a signifier of safety and enclosure, and the triangle, which is a key connective form for designers.

For the first time, these three studies appear in a single volume. Available now, Bruno Munari: Square Circle Triangle is a visual case study exploring the historical, cultural, and scientific background of the square, circle, and triangle.
