Joe Earle’s Buriki is a comprehensive tour of The Toku Tanaka Collection of toys. After WWII, when international trade for Japan resumed, talented toy makers took American cars as inspiration for a fruitful new line of product. The book chronicles all the cars and vehicles made in Japan. A great snap shot of an industry and a period of both American and Japanese ingenuity.
