'The Joyful Community,' 1971

…the 1971 book by Benjamin Zablocki that just arrived in the mail (along with a pile of others – which will provide perfect plane reading on lots and lots of long long upcoming flights – ordered from a wishlist which gradually grew from sources I no longer recall) recounts his experiences visiting the Bruderhof – the intentional community he admired the most of  hundred-plus he had visited through the years – which migrated from Germany to England to Paraguay and eventually to a few locations in the U.S. where they began to support themselves in the business of selling their handmade wooden toys, Community Playthings.
