Menlo Park: Portola Institute, Inc., 1970. 1st Edition. Folio, publisher's stapled illustrated gold paper wraps printed in black.
Miscellany of articles, extracts, teaching aids, book reviews, and product ads centered on the countercultural educational philosophies and practices arising from the alternative schools movement of the 1960s. Topics include "Process Learning," "Educational Environments," "Classroom Materials & Methods," "Home Learning" and "Self Discovery." Published by the Portola Institute, the Menlo Park-based non-profit foundation that produced the Whole Earth Catalog, this catalog/magazine makes the same riotous use of type, illustration and page layout as the Catalog to communicate its millenarian call for self-realization through education. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos, collages, drawings, reproductions and diagrams. Light edgewear and rubbing to wraps. Near fine. Item #1347
