GALT Toys Exhibition Catalogue

4.50

To co-incide with our exhibition GALT, GAMES & GARLAND (04.04.17 - 31.05.17 at Manchester Central Library) we present a catalogue:

Based in Manchester, Galt revolutionised the nature of play in Britain, employing Ken Garland Associates to rebrand, package and produce an innovative product range, based on new modernist and educational principles. 

Collaborative, non gender specific, graphically bold, brightly coloured, durable and fun - Fizzog, Octons, Montage and Connect were fresh and exciting in their use of high quality illustration and simple geometric design. A stripped back sans serif logo and crisp Swiss typography added to the modern feel of the brand. Widely distributed through a mail order catalogue they were a familiar sight in thousands of schools, and now some fifty years later, evoking fond memories for the generations of children and parents that played with them.

This is the first ever major retrospective of Galt's achievements, displaying over sixty varied examples, collected by the curators, along with catalogues, books and other artefacts and ephemera. 

Exhibition, devised and curated by Natalie Ainscough & Stephen Marland

Catalogue: Features images of toys presented in the exhibition. 52 pages. Colour.
