During the Sandown Park Collectors Fair on Saturday 16th November, die-cast toy enthusiasts will have a prime opportunity to pick up a brand new book on post-war Dinky Toys, Dinky Supertoys and Dublo Dinky Toys. In 'Dinky Toys A Pictorial Record', long time collector David Busfield has produced a lavish photographic record of these models so sought after today.

Using models from his own collection and that of his friend Graham de Chastelain, David has brought together some of the finest examples of Dinky Toys produced between 1949 and the early 1960s to produce a stunning collection of images of the golden era of Dinky Toys production. The large format book has 196 pages containing over 200 high quality, full colour photographs, along with a description of each item. The chapters in the book are arranged in a similar manner to the Dinky catalogues of the period i.e. Cars, Commercial, Public Service, Military etc.

Barry Potter states in his foreword that Dinky Toys have great visual presence and reflect the era they were produced in so well. David has captured all of that appeal in his book and for anyone with even a passing interest in the subject, it will be a delight to own.
