One of our favorite toy designers, Libuse Niklová (1934 – 1981) left a large body of work including many that have become Czech and modern design icons. They still delight us after decades and we're very happy to enjoy her work in this beautiful book, the first monograph featuring 500 color photographs of her designs.
She pioneered new toy design with her innovative use of plastics in mid-century Europe. With a fine sense of whimsical humor captured perfectly by her ability for inimitable simplicity, she has produced some of the best animal toy designs we've seen. Each one animated with such personality that you just can't find in many 'cute' but characterless kids designs so ubiquitous now. Her work inspires us to look for passion and inspiration in our everyday play!

You can also check out our collection of the classic inflatable toys by Libuse Niklová.

This beautiful monograph is designed by Zuzana Lednická, the designer of the inflatable beach balls in our shop, and won the bronze medal in the World’s Most Beautiful Book, Leipzig.

2013 edition, only 1500 copies made. A collector's item.
