Dick and Jane, America’s answer to the Peter and Jane series, has a new version charting the history of the children’s reading books. New York City graphics group Spot Design has taken the original characters and illustrations, and combined them with facts and archive photos of the period to create Growing Up with Dick and Jane. The book aims to reflect the changes in US society from the 1930s to the 1960s as recorded in the Dick and Jane series. To “visually evoke childlike feelings in the reader … Spot set the original Dick and Jane copy in large type with large photo illustrations”, in contrast to the information on the facts on the period, says a Spot spokesman. The book goes on shelf in the autumn.
