Hardcover with glossy boards, printed on a variety of different color papers, 21.5 by 15.5 cm, [142] pp., illus. Very good with light bumping at the corners. An entertaining look at environmental education. From the preface: “This is a book about that fashionable word ‘environment,’ a painless introduction which explains how to communicate the significance of a place to those who visit it (sometimes called ‘interpretation’). The chapters cover 15 illustrated talks, most of which were given by the author at international Council of Europe meetings, in the form of very long strip cartoons drawn on continuous rolls of drawing material – if all the originals had been stretched, end to end, they might well have gone round the Council’s Strasbourg headquarters three times… This modest volume gives a popular account of the author’s earlier (unpopular) works on the very complex subject – so fraught with perils, traps, difficulties, misunderstandings, obstacles, pitfalls and (of course) very long sentences.”
