Michael Augustyniak å Pros Full colorHuge pictures and nice layoutSequential year of release formattingDebut years of sculpts, dolls, or doll linesIncludes dolls released exclusively in other markets unfortunately, the pros end here.
One major con for Black doll collectors The omission of several, as in too numerous to count African American Barbies and friends, is misleading.
If the goal was to include only Barbies, I was teased by the initial inclusion of vintage dark skinned dolls e.
g Francie, Christie, Brad, Cara, Curtis, Julia into thinking all members of the Barbie and friends family would follow The author s format consistently includes images and details for every white doll made in the lines explored, to include the different hair colors blonde, brunette, red, etc but in many of the lines where dark skinned dolls are known to exist, no mention is made of these dolls via illustration or text A notation that the excluded dolls were manufactured e.

The following is my observation of known African American dolls omitted whose white counterparts are included in the book SuperStar Christie, Magic Curl Barbie, Twirly Curls Barbie, Crystal Barbie and Crystal Ken,Great Shape Barbie, Peaches n Cream Barbie, Day to Night Barbie, the Heart Family series, Dream Glow Barbie and Ken, Astronaut Barbie, Magic Moves Barbie, Jewel Secrets Barbie and Ken, Funtime Barbie, Super Hair Barbie, Perfume Giving Barbie and Ken, Doctor Barbie, Dance Magic Barbie and Ken, Flight Time Barbie, Costume Ball Barbie and Ken, Teen Talk Barbie, Totally Hair Barbie, Radiant in Red Barbie, Earring Magic Barbie, Hollywood Hair Barbie, Paint n Dazzle Barbie, Western Stampin Barbie, Police Officer Barbie, Camp Barbie, Super Talk Barbie, Dance Moves Barbie, Pretty Dreams Barbie, Teacher Barbie, Cool Shavin Ken, Talk with Me Barbie, Harley Davidson Barbie 1, Bead Blast Barbie, 40th Anniversary Barbie and Ken, Happy Family series Alan, Midge, Ryan and the new baby Princess and the Pauper Barbie and Ken 45th Anniversary Barbie, Generations of Dreams Barbie, Barbie 50th Anniversary, and My Favorite Doll Black Barbie.
In addition, most African American Staceys and Skippers are omitted.
This is just a partial listing of the Black Barbies and friends that are omitted from Augustyniak s current Barbie book I am sure there are other African American, Hispanic, and Asian dolls that were cropped out of Barbie s photo album The informed collector is left hanging the novice is left misinformed.

A Full Color Resource With Than , Photos Provides Identification Information And Values For Than , Barbie Dolls Issued From To , Celebrating The Th Anniversary Of The Popular Toy I like the photos There s lots of years covered in this book.
With the title Barbie Doll Photo Album, I wasn t entirely sure what to expect from this book, but my hopes were high since anyone familiar with J Michael Augustyniak s other tremendous Barbie doll books knows that his titles are must haves in any doll reference library When I received this ASTOUNDING 450 page hardcover book, I could NOT put it down as page after page fascinated me with the brilliant colors, HUGE photographs throughout many photos fill the ENTIRE page , wonderful close up photos, and fascinating information regarding identification, stock numbers, trivia, and values The lay out was absolutely the BEST, as the book, logically, follows Barbies life chronologically from 1959 all the way through Christmas Holiday Barbie 2009 The book features MANY, MANY vintage rarities in new in box condition never shown in any other doll books, and Augustyniak treats even the recent years with the same respect given the vintage period with countless dolls Ken collectors will be ecstatic as no other book has ever shown so many Ken dolls Ken debuted in 1961 and is shown continuously through the book , and the other Barbie friends and family members are also incredibly well represented The great charm of this book is that the most advanced collectors as well as those just beginning collecting will find this book impossible to put down, as this visual history of Barbie through the last 50 years is simply as lovely as the doll I would give this book a PERFECT rating, especially since I would have expected to pay far than 29.
95 for a book of this size and value This is a fantastic book for helping identify Barbie dolls I love that is went up to recent years for collectors who like the later dolls Very nice pictures and clear descriptions I can always recommend Augustyniak s books The only down side if there is one is that it doesn t cover any fashions Also, I don t believe it covers any foreign issues I was hoping it would Sarah Sink Eames really needs to do some further volumes I would like to see someone catalogue ALL separately sold authentic Mattel Barbie fashions from 1979 where SSE s stop up to at least the Fashion Fever closet wave era and or present day I know that would be quite an undertaking because there are so many But it would nice to have them all properly titled and id for collecting purposes Maybe I should devote the rest of my days to doing that Very informative big book on Barbie dolls released since 1959 up until 2009 The author has different book for Collector Barbie dolls, this volume here focuses on playline dolls mostly The photos are big, crisp clear and are of pretty good quality Dolls are shown in their boxes and there are many close ups Interesting to read when different Barbie friends, family members and face molds were first introduced I was also very interested reading about Barbie dolls of 1990s However the edition is not complete as it is missing some iconic 1990s Barbie releases as the Weekend Barbie line with Reebok Adidas sneakers, Sea Holiday line and some But I m giving it 5 stars as it is the best and most complete book of its kind Great photos too as previously mentioned
