(1000 items available)
This title explores the Abbatt Toys and shop, founded by Paul and Marjorie Abbatt in the early 1930s. This is the first account of the Abbatts and explores the toys, but also the modernist context of their ethos, designs and shop. If you have an interest in English modernism, the development of play and toys, the circle of Erno Goldfinger, Hampstead, The European Educationalists of the 1920s and 30s, or just wonderful toys of teh Abbatts, then this is an essential book.
