Reseña del editor:

Creatively and lovingly made at first by children for their own use, toys of recycled material have been on offer from the 1980s at traditional West African markets and are enormously popular. The Swiss collection comprising 150 items shown here has been amassed over the past ten years. Assembled with the simplest of techniques, toys such as motorbikes, cars, lorries, air-planes and military equipment are conjured up from all sorts of materials (wire, tin cans, plastic,wood, scraps of metal and cloth) with no limits set on their creators' imagination. Most of these toys are vehicles, which shows the status mobility has in African society. By now small workshops have emerged to ensure the survival of toy-making families. Text in English, German and French

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
