Luke Jones caught the collecting bug at age nine when he purchased the first of what is now an unparalleled treasury of Australian designed and manufactured toys.
This new publication from Melbourne Books dives into the thirty years of Jones' collection with a beautifully photographed and documented history of Australian manufactured toys from 1900-1965.
Luke Jones’ collection has been assembled with passion and a lifetime's commitment and is unrivalled for its breadth and quality. 'Australian Toys' makes an important contribution to the recorded history of Australian society, childhood and family and of Australian manufacturing.
Publisher Melbourne Books has been helping tell the hidden tales of Melbourne for twenty years. Melbournalia is pleased to carry a wide range of Melbourne Books titles.
