In this authoritative reference book Judith Miller includes archival illustrations that mark the teddy bear's history from the 1920s to the 1970s, when bear artists and artisans took over from the traditional manufacturers, many of which had shut their doors. The book also features specially commissioned photographs of adorable teddy bears from public and private collections, and it gives information about the many styles, designers and makers, from antique Steiff bears to modern limited-edition bears. All of the important manufacturers and crafters of teddy bears are covered, including Bing, Chad Valley, Farnell, Ideal, Merrythough, Schuco and, of course, Steiff.
