Dinky Toys must be some of the most successful and collectable toys ever made. In an affectionate tribute, each model is given its own delightful setting, reflecting a more gentle and innocent era. Visual puns abound: The Landrover, “a fine model of a vehicle designed to go anywhere and do anything,” climbs its way up a staircase, while the Avro York Airliner takes off from the ironing board. An open-top sports car zooms along, fighting the gale-force winds of an electric fan.
A sophisticated and stylish design book, this is the ideal gift for the postwar baby boomer.
