Book Review #515
500 Handmade Dolls
Rating: two stars (out of four)

There are some dolls in here that are absolutely amazing!  I cannot believe how much detail has been put into them, or how life-like they look.  There are also dolls that frankly, give me the creeps.  I really don't think that dolls should be made to look "disturbing" because doesn't that defeat the whole purpose?  And then there were other dolls that I felt were improperly lacking clothing in inappropriate areas.  There were lots of different reactions I had while reading this book, from in awe - to horrified.  There are all sorts of dolls in this book: sweet, scared, random, beaded, contemporary, abstract, scary, ugly, beautiful, fanciful and whimsical.  I would recommend this book to people who like dolls or are interested in seeing someone's artistic rendition of one.
