I come here to present you for whom doesn't knit le "theatre de la mode "this lovely book still on sale a amazon
it's all about the creation of those little 27"tall wire mannequins dressed by the most famous French Haute couture" names . It's no a novel indeed, but I thinks the story is pleasant to read and inform well of the conditions of the post II war period. I have visited the Expo (part of it) when it was presented in Seattle. and bought the book. it's full of wonderful pictures and of course some pics of the Tonner reproductions.

i just got a new book to read that i am super excited for! "had the queen lived, an alternate history of ann boleyn"! i know some of you history folks will be interested!!!
I just adore this little book. I like it so much that I carry it around with me in my purse. I have been a big fan of Francesca Lia Block since my late teens, I have just discovered Barbara McClintock's incredibly detailed, microscopic illustrations and I am dying to see more. It is written for children, but I think it is perfect for doll lovers of any age. Here is what it says on the flyleaf:
Ina little house from another time, with lace curtains in every window and painting hung in gold doily frames, Wildflower, Rockstar, and Miss Selene live a warm and cosy life. They wear fancy dresses, bake play-dough cakes, and spend their days enjoying one another's company. For the three dolls, life is small but good. But life is not good for Madison Blackberry, the owner of the dollhouse. Her grandmother pays more attention to the dolls than to her. The dolls have one another, but she is lonely in her big, empty apartment. Then one day, as things always do - even for dolls - everything changes.
The writing is stellar, in my opinion, and the illustrations are nothing short of incredible. If you think the cover is amazing, wait until you see the two-page plate of the dolls in their library! (droool....)
You can find a copy on Amazon.com.
Of course, Simon! Anything goes!
Thanks for creating this group Mary Beth. I look forward to what everyone has to say in regards to books and dolls.
Also is this a place where we could review books on dolls? I have been reading a few lately and I would like to recommend them for others.
