bookshelves: creepy-dolls

my thanks to boyd for answering my call for "more creepy doll books". it seems everyone knew about this but me. and its great! i got the two still in print, and will track down the rest. and while i was buying them, my cashier-friend commanded me to read the bio, which i will also do. this book is beautiful and sad and just so well-posed. theres a lot more conveyed than meets the eye at first glance. these photos need to be really examined, not just paged through. another book i am baffled that children are exposed to.

When I was a kid, I was very rarely creeped out by anything, but there was this version of Snow White and Rose Red that was illustrated with dolls in photos with dollhouse and fake woods settings. It was VERY CREEPY! If I ever find it, I'll send it to you becaues if there is a creepy-dolls shelf, it needs this book.

karen ooh thank you!! i assume it is long out of print, yeah? i would love to track that down.

Yes, but some day I'll stumble across it at goodwill or something.

The cover was holographic!

karen oh man - that makes it twice as rad.

CLM Also, my sisters and I had that book your friend mentioned with hologram cover. I think it was a fairy tale series, so we may have had more than one but it does not appear to have survived.

karen as long as i know it is out there...
