np: 1960. 8vo, 28 pp, printed french fold wraps. Illustrated with color plates, some printed on glassine, and black and white photographs. With texts by J. Hamels, Henri Biscompte, Victor Bourgeois, A. Constant, Oscar Gits and E. Natalis,
The beautifully produced, and virtually unknown catalog for this exhibition on architecture and design in pedagogy and the Belgian school system, which was inspired by the work of the the teacher and Freemason Jean-Ovide Decroly and was presented as Belgium's contribution to the XII Triennale di Milano at the Palazzo dell'Arte.
It reproduces artwork, perhaps by children, many of which look remarkably like COBRA work (COBRA artist Serge Vander Cam was involved with the production of the catalog), architectural drawings, and several photographs of furniture by Jules Wabbes.
Wraps creased and heavily rubbed at spine, with a 2" tidemark at foot of rear wrap, and binding overopened at half-title page. A worn, but sturdy and complete example, and rare - OCLC locates no holdings. Item #24316
