I hope you are able to read this. I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how excited I am about my book "How to be an Explorer of the World" being published by Corraini!!! I saw it on the website today and it brought tears of joy to my eyes. I should explain that for many years one of my greatest influences is Bruno Munari. So to be published by his publisher is such a huge honor for me, I am very proud. I almost can't believe it is happening.
So thank you! You have made one of my life long dreams come true. I would love to do something with you in the future!
all my best,
