About the Book
The first full-color black-doll reference book with over 400 images of the dolls it references and values. Featured in this book are Black dolls made from cloth, bisque, celluloid, composition, paper, rubber, wood, and hard plastic. Fashion dolls, modern artist dolls, and other doll categories are covered. This long overdue, insightful book includes a price guide and tips for buying and selling in the collectorâs market. It is a must-have book for collectors and social historians who want to see first-hand the evolution of a childhood plaything which in recent years has also been fashioned for adult collectors.
