Marcel R Van Cleemput, of French parentage, first came to England in 1935 at the age of nine. After serving in the French army he settled in Northampton and married a local girl.

He joined the Mettoy Company on 1 January 1954 as a designer and was soon promoted to the position of Chief Designer. In late 1954 he produced the very first drawings for the Corgi range and was subsequently involved in every single model throughout the years until the company's demise in 1983.

The Corgi range was his life, and as well as amassing a collection of virtually every model made during those years, he also preserved much fascinating and unique material relating to the production and marketing of the range. This archive has been invaluable in the preparation of this exhaustive history.

After 1983, Marcel formed his own design company and continued to be responsible for Corgi designs and model making for a few more years. In the past two years he has spent a great deal of time researching Corgi's amazing development and fortunes of the past 26 years, giving us another great book for the real Corgi enthusiasts.
The bestselling 'Great Book of Corgi' has been fully revised and updated with over 100 new colour photographs; this book will be an essential addition to the library of all model collectors.
