Dinky Toys must be one of the most successful and collectable toys ever made. This wonderful gift book features stylish photographs from the golden age of the Dinky toy. But these are not pristine, shiny models - their charm, according to their collector, photographer Kim Sayer, is in the chips and dents and worn paint work. These are toys that have been played with and much loved. Each model is given its own delightful setting, reflecting a more gentle and innocent era, while visual puns and wordplay abound. A nostalgic and sophisticated looks at childhood toys of the 50s.
