Edited by Juliet Kinchin. With contributions by Tanya Harrod, Medea Hoch, Juliet Kinchin, Francis Luca, Maria Paola Maino, Amy Ogata, Aidan O'Connor, David Senior, and Sarah Suzuki
 
Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000 brings together an unprecedented collection of objects and concepts from around the world in order to investigate the fascinating confluence of modern design and childhood. The wide-ranging ideas described here—from the beginning of the kindergarten movement to wartime propaganda, from design for children with disabilities to innovations in playground design—illuminate how progressive design has shaped the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children's play and pedagogy have inspired designers' creative experimentation.
 
Featuring over four hundred illustrations and sections on school architecture, playgrounds, toys and games, educational materials, nurseries, furniture, animation, advertising, books, and clothing, this volume examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children. 264 pp.; 435 illus.
