From Pop Art Design: for the sake of devising a theme, I recommend that you read beyond the required reading.

The articles that I had printed for the November 14 Docent Council meeting are considered “required” reading. I have placed an asterisk by their titles below.

I have articles in order as they appear in the catalogue published by the Vitra Design Museum, Germany.

If you chose to print any of the below, please consider the most eco-friendly way of doing so 🙂
