A Drama in Time: The New School Century by John Reed, faculty, MFA in Creative Writing program at The New School

Profile Books, 2019

From the publisher:

A Drama in Time is an illustrative and beautifully designed mosaic narrative that weaves together the many histories of one of America’s most progressive universities. Founded by political dissidents in 1919, the School has become a byword for academic freedom and progressive thought. Now encompassing five schools, including Parsons School of Design, The New School is a centre for notable designers, writers, musicians, artists and political activists. The book design is reflective of the change-making, status-quo pushing attitude of the school: dynamic and unexpected while remaining elegant.
