While exploring the second-hand stores in Edinburgh, I found several boxes of cards used to teach the English language. I was first attracted to the graphics (straight out of the 60’s), then became intrigued by the thoughtfulness behind the cards. They combine the fun of puzzles with the task of learning new words. This struck me as similar to where our culture seems to be moving, with the blending of work and play. Funny that someone back in the 60’s understood the magic of putting the two together.
