The building-block has been a familiar and much-loved presence in children's toy-boxes for centuries. In the twentieth century, however, new production techniques allowed it to evolve into a multiplicity of systems which enabled any child to be both architect and skilled builder, capable of constructing realistic and sturdy miniature buildings. This beautifully illustrated book is devoted to British building toys, from the well-known to the more niche brands. Photographs of sets, completed buildings and box art and advertising material make this book a feast of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the middle years of the last century, and an invaluable source of information for any collectors who keep the memory of these toys alive today.
