A child may regard toys and furniture as largely interchangeable objects in the serious work of play, but in this fascinating new study of their design history, these everyday objects are revealed as vehicles for society's attitudes towards learning.Essays to accompany the many and varied photographs have been written by leading childhood specialists, social historians, ethnologists, educationalists, and industrial designers: Lucy Bullivant, Mike Scaife, Linda Pollock, Eileen Adams, Gunter Beltzig, Ingeborg Weber-Kellermann, Gerhard Kubik, Tina Wodiung and Sally Kevill-Davies. This unique volume, published to accompany a touring exhibition organized by the Vitra Design Museum in Switzerland, will prove to be of great interest to both design historians and educationalists.
