Fornasetti: Designer of Dreams, Patrick Mauriès, page 238, the author writes- The idea of dividing up the bodies of Adam and Eve into twelve dinner plates is surely one that no one but Fornasetti would conceive. They were designed in 1954. Each plate has its attractions, but like a jigsaw puzzle they only reveal their meaning when seen together.
