A hefty hardback book with many enjoyable images, this is perhaps not the ideal book for the brand completist since it doesn't go maker-by-maker, but instead is split into sections by theme. Nonetheless, with the sheer number of models covered (there are well over 1000 photos), it is a great reference source and the text included is all interesting and informative. The images are very attractive and good quality as well - this is indeed a book both for those who are interested in tin toy vehicles and who are just interested in lithography and the design of such objects.
