THE GOLDEN YEARS OF MATCHBOX ART
Autore: Roy Huxley
La riproduzione a colori di 100 dipinti di Roy Huxley usati per illustrare le scatole di kit di montaggio della Matchbox negli anni 1970.
In 1973 an exciting new range of 'pocket money' model kits was launched in the UK, much to the delight of schoolboys up and down the country. These Matchbox kits were cheap, simple to make and moulded in two or three different coloured plastics so that the younger modellers didn't even need to paint them. The most memorable thing about them however, wasn't the multi-coloured plastic or the slightly eccentric choice of subjects, it was the dynamic and action packed box-art, painted almost exclusively by Roy Huxley. Featuring over 100 large paintings and many more smaller illustrations, this book is a long overdue journey down memory lane, not just for those long lost schoolboys but also for any fan of military art.
