Design for Paperbacks. A How-To Report on Furniture for Fingertip Access.

Web Abstract: 
Presents furniture designs aimed at providing physical solutions to the problems and needs generated by the use of paperbacks in education. First, they are directed toward accessibility of the books in the library, bookstores, classrooms, lounges, commons, corridors, and wherever else students may move or assemble in the school. Secondly, they are calculated to attract youngsters to reach for the books on impulse. The designs are adaptable in traditional buildings with fixed interior partitions and in buildings with increasing degrees of openness for team-teaching and non graded programs.
