A Box of Delights. A Box of Basic Design Slides

A while back I had the good fortune to come across a wonderful box of Slides, these slides were produced by Focal Point and were called Basic Design Slides. In the box were a total of 168 slides. The best way to describe these slides would be that they are very similar to the images/shapes/graphics in Kurt Rowlands Looking and Seeing series of books (Pattern and Shape, The Shapes we Need, The Development of Shape and The Shape of Towns) I passed these on to my friend Mr Stevens, who very kindly scanned the whole lot. They are really very good, and to be honest I will probably use them at a later date. But until then, here is a very small selection.


  1. Heck yes! Were there any "teacher's notes" with them?
