About this title


Who hasn't had one of these in their hands, at least as a child - the tin aeroplanes and ships, the clockwork robots or the big American limousines? It was not only these and other tin toys which the toy cupboards contained however. They were also home to a colourful medley of many childhood dreams and longings. Today, these tin toys can transport us back ot our childhood, they call up a vision of a time we thought we had already forgotten. In this book you will find over 1000 pictures of tin toys, from robots, spaceships to people and animals. Very colorful pictures.

Store Description

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
