Fantastic Plastic: The Kitsch Collector’s Guide
Pete Ward. Wacky, crazy, eccentric, gaudy, tasteless -- this is the kitsch collector’s guide to everything plastic from 50s household items to 90s celebrity figures. Wherever you find plastic you can also find kitsch in one form or another. Here are gaudy colors, unusual shapes & nostalgic associations that hold a childlike fascination for the collector. Whether you are just starting to collect, or are an established enthusiast, this book is not only packed with zany examples of kitsch as an idea of taste, but also includes invaluable information on the history of plastic, & tips on collecting & caring for your treasures. From nodding dogs to Elvis dolls, from pez dispensers to extraordinary jewelry, there is something for all lovers of kitsch. Over 350 full-color pictures.
