Book Description

21 Mar 2006 MTV Overground (Book 3)
Toys are no longer just for kids—they are at the heart of a new pop culture movement. The new toy scene emerged in 1997 when designer Michael Lau exhibited G.I. Joes he'd customized into hip-hop street figures at a Hong Kong toy show. Artists from Hong Kong and Japan followed suit, creating their own limited edition vinyl figures. The vinyl toy movement soon went global, invading the US and Europe with a vengeance and spawning an intense, worldwide collector's culture.Toys documents the amazing variety and mesmerizing detail of these unique, highly collectible figures from the top artists in Hong Kong, Japan, the US, the UK, Canada, and Australia, including James Jarvis, Gary Baseman, Frank Kozik, Jim Woodring, Ugly Dolls, and Todd Schorr. With dazzling imagery and interviews with the artists, this detailed collection is the perfect source for inspiration and information for designers, graphic designers, and collectors alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl Toys are Awsomer than I thought 12 Sep 2008
By Ricardo Y. Cortes - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, i said awsomer. The point of the fact is that this is one smashing toy book, it is packed with photo after photo of crazy designs from various artists. And if you love the work of Jim Davis then, then so the better. I highly recommended this book for toy lover, illustrators and designers for creative inspiration.
I just wish there were more interviews with the artists, there is a couple, including one with Jim Davis. This is my only complaint with is book.
