Description

Exploring the nexus of emotions, consumption and commodification that porcelain collectible dolls
represent, A. F. Robertson tracks the rise of this multi-billion dollar market; interviews the women
themselves; and visits their clubs, fairs and chat-rooms to understand what makes the dolls so
irresistible. Lifelike but freakish; novelties that profess to be antiques; pricey kitsch: These dolls are the
product of powerful emotions and big business.
