Suspended Animation

An Unauthorised History of Herald and Britains Figures

Everything you always wanted to know about Herald and Britains, and a handful of things which you hadn't even got round to thinking about.

This magnificent A4 volume, entitled "Suspended Animation: An Unauthorised History of Herald & Britains Plastic Figures", is packed with all the stuff which figure collectors drool over. In its 198 pages there are over 200 photographic illustrations, in colour as well as black & white; over 1,000 line drawings, including illustrations of every figure made by either of the firms; diagrams to explain all the processes involved; and a clearly-written and entertaining text which contains interviews with many of the main people connected with the story, and much fascinating behind-the-scenes information about the technical, economic, and political background to the two firms' figure production. All this material is straightforwardly and attractively presented, making the book a delight to own.
