Odd Ball Short Story
While researching the International Correspondence Schools recently, I was reminded of the odd-ball J.D. Salinger short story, De Daumier-Smith’s Blue Period, about a young man reduced by sad personal circumstances to take a job as a correspondence art course instructor.
I was researching the correspondence school to find out from where this technical text book came.
There’s a great article about correspondence art schools by Steve Heller in the 12.15.09 Design Observer, too.
