Buckminster Fuller to Children of Earth

Recently added to the Ingalls Library, via the continuing generosity of John C. Bonebrake, is this volume, Buckminster Fuller to Children of Earth, by noted architect, designer, and thinker, R. Buckminster Fuller, with photographs by Cam Smith.   Written in a matter of fact tone, the book juxtaposes Fuller's folksy truisms against black and white photography.  It is at the least an historical document of early seventies environmentalism.  And while some of the writing is far less enlightening than Fuller's seminal works, it is hard not to take some wisdom from lines like, "Nature has no weeks.  There is no Monday, Tuesday, Friday in nature."  PS3511.U6617 B8 1972
