Orazio Di Mauro and Franco Paoletti. A4, paperback, 125 pages, illustrated throughout in full colour. Covers the composition and pastic figures of Italian manufacturers from 1930 to 1970. The cut off date means that it excludes the production of Atlantic plastics, but they are well documented elsewhere anyway. Text in Italian and English, very informative, this is a "must have" book. It includes copies of the CONFALONIERI, NARDI and XILOPLASTO catalogues. Much of the material in this book has had very little if any exposure elsewhere. Published 1994 by Editzioni LAZZARO Sas, Via Marsigli 4, 10141 Torino. price 56,000 Lire. (no ISBN no.)
