Barbie Millicent Roberts: An Original
Pantheon Books, 1998 - Photography - 93 pages
The early and rare Barbie -- in seventy-five ravishing photographs. Here is Barbie as she was meant to be seen and celebrated, clothed in Mattel's now impossible-to-find ensembles that were copied from the original designs of the great couturiers -- Chanel, Balenciaga, and Dior among them -- and photographed by the foremost toy photographer at work today.
No other book on Barbie shows her as she is seen here. In image after breathtaking image, her hair, her accessories, her outfits are all styled to perfection. This is how her creators intended for her to look to the millions who saw in Barbie the embodiment of their dreams of beauty and glamour.
Beautifully printed and bound, this is a book that will appeal to Barbie collectors and to anyone who is, or ever was, a Barbie adorer.
