Description
 
This is one of Germany's most famous classic toys. It is a modular toy system, first designed in the  art institution in Rudolstadt by artists, illustrators and architects. One would cut out the doors and place them on the grid provided. There are two pages of uncut figures, with a total of 24 figures. These pages are numbered five and six. Additionally there is a grid, approximately 14" x 6" to place the figures on. On the back of the grid are instructions in ten different languages. The two figure pages are stapled together. At one point the grid was stapled to them as well, but it has since detached. As such there is a small piece of the outer blank boarder of the grid missing. These are crease marks on both the figure pages and the grid sheet from where it was folded. There is some soiling, and very slight foxing on one of the figure pages. Measures: 9" x 6" (figure pages), and  14" x 6" (grid page).
