Details

More than 500 rare and beautiful toys from the renowned collection of Paris' MusÈe des Arts DÈcoratifs are photographed by Michel Pintado in tableaux of children's playrooms from 1870 to the present.

These unearthly photographs--amusing, moving, intriguing, and at times, terrifying--alternate with text by Alberto Manguel that mingles the real and the imaginary, truth and fiction, retelling both well-known and obscure children's stories.
