Dinky Toys books

The book "French Dinky Toys aircraft" is sold out but I am thinking about having a few printed in French. Is anybody interested ?

A new book about Dinky Toys has been issued last November.

The book by Dominique Pascal was very bad but this new book deserves to be listed in the Guiness book of records as the worst Dinky Toys book. It is about a mix of only fourty French, English and Chinese saloon cars writen in bad French and stuffed with errors. The only good thing about it is that the pages are nicely laid out.

If I may make a suggestion, A V O I D it. The author is not even mentioned on the cover.

                                                      

This book is also available in a set with two Chinese Dinky the VW 1200 and the Fiat 600 D.
