    Interesting and well informed academic study primarily focusing on the rise and decline of French fashion dolls and their influence on a new wave of mature women dolls from the 1950s onwards The book also looks at the divide between research on costume history and research on fashion dolls and the reasons why the two have remained such separate topics

    I borrowed this from the library and enjoyed it so much that I bought it Admittedly this was for research but it's a fascinating look into the rise of a very particular cultural object It's academic in tone though and won't appeal to everyone

    Great research on a subject that has not been of very much interest in academia before dolls and the doll industry – which is huge Recommended research and obligatory reference
