What I did not like about this book: The majority of the book was obviously copied from public-domain sources and the author does NOT give credit. The book feels flimsy (it is a small, thin paperback) and the number of typos is surprising considering that this is the second edition. There is no modern photography here; the photos are small, black-and-white and sometimes show the style from only one angle.
What the artists needed was this book. Hundreds of photographs and diagrams make it easy to create that forties look painlessly.
However, it's not just for doll artists. I showed the book to several owners of vintage clothing boutiques during a recent cross-country trip, and they went nuts -- they didn't know they could get all the information they wanted in one modern book, they had been relying on very expensive vintage magazines.
The styles are so great, they really translate well into todays' looks, too. After all, hair hasn't changed, just the way it is styled!
I was very impressed with the depth of information in the
book and the Hollywood starlet pics are a plus. :) It's a slim text but packs a lot.
This book is very high on the glamour meter. I plan on buying all of Daniela Turidich's books!
