Editorial Reviews

Review

"-crisp, acerbic, all wit and brilliance, a joy to the eye as well as to the mind. But much more important to this reader, is the masterly way in which the author sorts through the bewildering plethora of plastic fashion dolls, to arrive at their philosophical truth, and an almost Olympian judgment of their values." -- John Darcy Noble, Curator of Toys, Emeritus, Museum of the City of New York

From the Publisher

Including a forward by John Darcy Noble, Toy Curator Emeritus of The Museum of the City of New York, primary and secondary prices, hundreds of color photographs and fashion sketches, and insightfully amusing, informative text, Designer Fashion Dolls is a must source for the sophisticated fashion doll collector.

Format: Paperback
There are collectors' manuals and then there are guides that enthrall both beginners and experts. Beauregard Houston-Montogmery's "Designer Fashion Dolls" is that rarity. The author's knowledge of the doll world--from bisque to vinyl--is all-encompassing. His photos are a joy, and his text provides both insight and wit. Best of all, Houston-Montgomery clearly lives in the real world and demonstrates how each doll is the product of her own culture and times. This book belongs on every doll aficionado's bookshelf beside those heirloom NRFB Barbies.

Format: Paperback
This book is only 5 X 7 inches and has small poor quality pictures. Not worth the money at all. Don't waste your money on this one!
