This is my ideal book really. It’s a King Penguin book – a superlative set of illustrated books from around the 1940s of just exactly the right size. The book is about toys. I really like toys. The toys are all from museum collections. I also like museums. The book weaves illustrations of the toys in with hand drawn type telling their stories, across the pages, walking them from one chapter into the next, literally and illustratively. At the back it tells you which museum the toys live in. Add a cracking cover and, well, there it is.
