Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from word-heavy posts. No intellectualising here, just ‘LOOK AT DEM PICTCHURS’!
These cheese-laden photos are taken from Barbie: Her Life and Times by Billyboy. It is sadly out of print but you can find cheap copies on Amazon or ABE Books if you need a fix of kitsch.
The book is split into two sections. The first charts the history of Barbie, the second is chock-full of pictures of Barbie wearing then-contemporary fashion from internationally renowned designers. This book was published in the Eighties, so the style has aged a bit. Regardless, it’s still a big fat guilty pleasure – the book equivalent of staying at home, eating several tubs of Chunky Monkey and watching your favourite nineties TV box sets until way past your bedtime.
