    Conceived by architectural consultants Robert Maltz and Kenneth Freidus (who took care of the book design), this issue of the Harvard Educational Review deals with architecture in relation to schools, children, imagination.

    The periodical presents essays by James S Ackerman, Topper Carew, Robert Coles, Giancarlo De Carlo, Aldo van Eyck, Robert Goodman, Herman Hertzberger, Peter Prangnell, Maurice K. Smith, Shadrach Woods and drawings by Saul Steinberg.

    The book format is unusual. Not square, but hardly an oblong, its ratio is approximately 11:12. The front and back cover use News Gothic, the interior is set in Akzidenz Grotesk (or Standard, as the typeface family was named in the US).
