Toy Bibliography from Francisco Ortega

Friend and collaborator Francisco Ortega has sent me his bibliography on toys and toy culture to help with the Critical Toys research. I will have to wait to read these until I get back to the US from our remote base. We have only seen one book store within a one-hour driving radius, and it is minimally stocked. Delivery of any online purchases poses its own set of challenges.
