“Blueprint” reissued as a set of books and posters

Robert D. Farber University Archives and Special Collections has obtained charts and other primary materials produced during the development of “Blueprint for Counter Education,” created by former Brandeis sociology professor Maurice Stein and Larry Miller ’69, PhD’80, and designed by Marshall Henrichs. First published in 1970, “Blueprint” sought to help educators radically rethink how they constructed their curricula. Two years ago, Inventory Press reissued “Blueprint” as a boxed set of two books and three posters (detail from a poster pictured here). And this spring, the Rose Art Museum presents an exhibition on the “Blueprint” project — a landmark in idea mapping, with Herbert Marcuse’s and Marshall McLuhan’s philosophies serving as twin centers of gravity — as part of an Institute of Contemporary Art collaboration called “Art in the Age of the Internet.”
