Australian Toys, A Collection by Luke Jones.
Australian Toys is an illustrated history of Australian manufactured toys from 1900-1965, drawing on the author’s authoritative collection.
The book documents the production of each toy with beautiful colour photographs accompanied by relevant text about the toy and manufacturer.
Luke Jones’ carefully structured collection has been assembled with passion and commitment over a period of more than thirty years and is unrivalled for its breadth and quality.
It provides an ideal platform to illustrate a history of twentieth century Australian manufactured toys, a history which has yet to be substantially documented in any form.
This book will make an important contribution to the recorded history of Australian society, childhood, family and manufacturing.
