Fröbelgabe (or kindergarten pixelation)
A beautiful example of a kindergarten exercise - specifically the 14th of Friedrich Fröbel's "gifts"
intended to allow young children free range of play and expression.
This 26-panel paper weaving book shows a variety of patterns,
including one page with the makers initials and the date of creation.
This example is apparently American, from 1892, made by "M. Kistler"
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
