Calling all telephone enthusiasts! Here is a guide to more than two hundred novelty telephones, as well as miniature and toy telephones. Novelty telephones are one of the hottest and most affordable collectibles to hit the collecting scene in recent years. Character telephones, telephone advertising products, and figural-type phones are all in demand. Starting in the '70s, these telephones were produced to promote company products, television shows, comic strips, comic books, cartoons, movies, recording artists, and sports. Miniature and toy telephones are highly desired by many antique telephone collectors and both are included in this enjoyable book. Descriptive captions list each phone's specific features. A guide to current prices is also included.
