The Art of Barbie

Hey Barbie, how did you do it? One day there you were with nothing more than a zebra-striped bathing suit and a sideways glance, and next thing you're a pop icon. Everybody loves you, girl. In The Art of Barbie, more than 100 artists, photographers, illustrators, and fashion designers--still playing Barbie after all these years--pay tribute to the world's most popular doll. A stunning visual homage, the book features the work of Calvin Klein, Betsey Johnson, Kenny Scharf, Seymour Chwast, Chuck Jones, Janet Woolley, Karl Lagerfeld, Francesco Scavullo, Rev. Howard Finster, Bob Mackie, Yves Saint Laurent, Warhol, and more--with each offering a fresh, surprising, playful, sometimes provocative vision of the original dream girl. 50,000 copies in print.
