They say never judge a book by it's cover. Any Barbie lover will doubt that notion when they see this cover! A blown up shot of our gorgeous #1 hero (pun intended, the doll shown is the first Barbie ever made!).
I purchased this book because I have always collected Barbie and I love Barbie clothes, especially ball gowns. Oh, the current clothes sold in stores are beautiful, but the old clothes are just hot, hot, hot! What made me purchase this fashion book in particular was the other customer reviews in Amazon.com; these other customers were definitely satisfied and described just what I was looking for -- photos and descriptions of the clothes along with their number in their series (like the 800, 900, 1600 series for Barbie and the 700 series for Ken). That way, when you shop on the internet and a vendor says it has no. 816, you can look in the book and see what it is and if you want it!
I can't say enough about Sarah Sink Eames except she's certainly done her homework, and readers should keep up with her work! Give this book a look-see, readers, you'll be glad you did!
'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!
