With the permision of Laura Azcoaga, Argentinian folder and researcher, I show you here some pictures of a new bibliographic discovery.

During the revision of the catalog before 1930 at the Biblioteca Nacional de Maestros (Teachers National Library) in Buenos Aires, Laura Azcoaga found a new old document by the autors Atilio Boveri and Florencio Loyarte "El Trabajo Manual en la Escuela Argentina" (Jacobo Peuser Ltda. Editores, 1928, 126 pags.).

See item #74: ... to=&sala=1

The pages 21, 22, 23, 25, 27, 31 and 33 of this publication have the didactics of teaching of the Froebelian forms of beauty (base blintz and base double blintz/salt cellar) as subject.

The Argentinian Council of Education considered 1927 this publicacion fit for the Argentinian schools and recommended a copy in each school library.

The book is printed in a highly artistic quality and reminds of the style of Kodo Kawarasaki who published later "Origami Moyo“ (Volumes 1. & 2., Kyoto: Nakazawa Nobuko, 1935), perhaps inspired by Atilio Boveri.

The Argentinian María Eugenia Sandín took pictures of this pages and Laura Azcoaga published it in Facebook.

This document is no included in other bibliography and I myself had no information about this title before. Atilio Boveri (1885-1949) was an important Argentinian artist and culture personality. As an artist, he worked with many materials and techniques and designed houses, gardens and urbanistic projects. He published many articles, founded social asociations, and dedicated his time to eduaction. Sadly, about Florencio Loyarte I found no relevant information.
