Publication Details: Desmond Harmsworth, 1932

Notes: An unusual book: Danish sculptor Adam Fischer took tableau-style photographs of his daughter Tora's toys for the amusement of her and her friends (and, one suspects, himself); having used the pictures to form a narrative, which he would relate whilst showing them on a screen, he and his wife realised it could be set down in book-form for wider enjoyment. It is a simple enough idea, with touches of the surreal in its execution befitting the experimental nature of his sculptural work.
