SUMMARY- Black-and-white photography throughout and lots of line illustrations. This isn't what I would call a gallery book, so if you're looking for big photos of lots of examples of a type of doll, you won't get that here - but still lots of interesting information and an enjoyable read. If you don't know anything about dolls, this book will give you the general outlines circa 1964.
