Architecture for Children
London, George Allen & Unwin Ltd 1944
118 ++ c8pp line ills. Photographs and line ills throughout . The images at the end of the book are chronologically arranged line ills as historical charts showing style of architecture at different periods. Small 8vo. Very good in slightly worn and chipped dust wrapper. Published at the height of the debate about post war reconstruction, These two modernist designers provide an introduction for children to modern architecture and sets architecture at the heart of social renewal. Fascinating. Considered recently in Kimberley Richard's recent book "Left Out: The forgotten tradition of radical publishing for children." Dust wrapper shows a family looking at what might well be Erno Goldfinger's Willow Road house.
