Top Customer Reviews
If this book was simply a catalog it would still be a must-have for collectors (of whom there are many worldwide). But it's much more. Van Cleemput clearly loved his work and was himself a collector throughout his career. He's included anecdotes of what it was like to work at Corgi (somewhat chaotic at times, it seems) and points out the technical sophistication of models children took for granted at the time.
If you're a collector this book is absloutely essential. But there's much enjoyment to be had if you only played with these models as a child. Turn the pages of this lavishly - beautifully - produced book and say "I used to have that one." Or if you had a sharp eye for an investment when you were only six years old, you can say "I've still got that one - in its original box!"
