ABC Vitrines

HOUSE DISPLAY CASES

We’ve integrated four display cases in the ABC house, two on the ground floor and two on the first floor. In them, each trimester, we show new alphabet books, images or objects from the ABC collection that deserve extra attention, our ‘coup de coeurs’ of the moment. In the cases on the ground floor we exhibit creative works of children (made during one of the ABC projects), and remarkably designed toys. In the display cabinets on the first floor we show the A, B & C pages from an old or new alphabet book and inventive projects with paper or special graphic design.

From each of these display cases you can see a picture here, to flavor and inspire.
