SUMMARY- I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this book. It turns out to be a small biography of each of the designers showcased with lots of photographs(black-and-white) displaying samples of each artist's work. I was really pleased to find this for inspiration and to get a good view of the doll artists of the 1980's.
