The Most Beautiful and Informative of All Barbie Books,
This review is from: Barbie Fashion: The Complete History of the Wardrobes of Barbie Doll, Her Friends and her Family, Vol. 1: 1959-1967 (Barbie Doll Fashion) (Hardcover)
This book and its companion volume, 'Barbie Doll Fashion: 1968-1974', are without doubt the most beautiful and informative books on the market for the vintage Barbie collector today. They are very well-written, with lovely photographs of absolutely pristine examples of each outfit, enough to make you drool over on every single page!
'Barbie Fashion, 1959-1967' contains fashions not only for Barbie, but for her friends and family as well. These include original outfits, Pak outfits, and every outfit available from 1959 to 1967. Also included are some very interesting prototypes and foreign outfits.
Each outfit is described in detail, with a photograph showing the outfit and all accessories next to it, laying flat. Some outfits are shown on the doll. The photography is stunning, by far the best of any Barbie book I've ever seen.
'Barbie Fashion, 1959-1967' isn't just informative, it's a catalogue of dreams to build on, and a fun book just to sit and look at. You'll never be sorry you own it!
