In 1958, the great Norman McLaren utilized paper cut-outs to transform
a French–Canadian nonsensical folk song into this playfully surrealistic animation.
In 1940, the same song had inspired a book project by Bruno Munari.
Published for the first time in 1987, it was recently reprinted by Corraini
using silk-screen printing on transparent plastic sheets.
Two lovely examples of genius in simplicity!
Watched the animation while blackbirds are singing in my garden, great!ReplyDelete
