Von der würde des kindes

A book I found in Austria. At first I wasn't sure if this was a vintage find or some bespoke retrofitted present-day magazine. Joyce said it looks like the kids edition of Apartamento. I asked the bookseller and he said it was a 1979 collection of essays written in the spirit of Rudolf Steiner's theory of the "dignity of the child."


  1. Weird combination of traditionalism and progressive education. Antroposophs in Lederhosen. Next time you're in Europe, you must come to Basel and we'll visit the Goetheanum, the world center of the Antroposoph mouvement just outside town. You'll love it.

  2. these photos are gorgeous! real sense of warmth and safety, especially this strange blanket fort.
