Reproducing vintage photographs made by Levinthal in the early 70s, the images in this book are arranged in a loose narrative sequence and feature a sexually liberated blonde Barbie enjoying intimate encounters with her steady boyfriend Ken, and exploring further pleasures with a black G.I. Joe doll. At once a charged work of artistic investigation and a light-weight celebration of popular culture, Levinthal's very early work is shown as an apt precursor to the path he would later take towards celebrated, but controversial projects like Hitler Moves East, Modern Romance, American Beauty, Blackface, and XXX. Text included features an introduction by Richard Prince, and a racy narrative fiction by John McWhinnie.

David Levinthal's photographs have been widely shown and reproduced in books over the past 20 years. He typically trains his camera on toys and miniature models, often producing culturally incendiary results peculiarly at odds with the apparently safe material photographed.
