This was my first purchase of a used item through that was not a domestic purchase The book came from the UK via and I knew that I hadn t fond it in time to order it so it would arrive by Christmas Since this was a present for my wife, I gave her a printout of the cover in a card and she was thrilled The description did not do the book justice I was a little concerned that since it was a used paperdoll book it may be cut up a little and the description said that the cover was in good shapein fact when i got it it looks brand new It came within two week after Christmas as promised.
I have always been curious about the colors of Lucy s marvelous clothes When I found this book I was thrilled It only covers one designer so not all of the outfits that I was especially curious about were depicted However, I was thrilled with the ones that were It also gave me insight into the kinds of colors Lucy liked so I feel I can better guess what those other outfits may have looked like It was so tempting to remove the cutouts and display the garment on the dolls 2 poses , but I resisted The documentation was very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am glad I went ahead and purchased it.
What I especially liked about this paperdoll book compared to others that I have is that there is information about the show s wardrobe and how Lucy s look evolved during the run of the show There are also lots of pictures showing Lucy wearing the outfits in different episodes of the show and that adds to it I wouldn t buy this to cut up and actually use for the paperdolls because it should be saved Ever since I got this book I look for the outfits when I watch the reruns on TV Land on the weekends.
Seeing the clothes Lucy wore in detail is great.
Great to look at, and will remind you of the old days when Lucy was in her prime and ontv with Ricky Ricardo Highly recommended for a tv or paper doll fan.
