Synopsis: This book is a fresh look at the early Barbie dolls as "time capsules of the past" that mirror popular culture. The fashion trends, make-up and hairstyles of the 60s are beautifully embodied in these lovely photographs of vintage Barbie dolls. Actual ads for beauty products are shown to document the fashionable trends of the period. The author has done a wonderful job of pointing out the revolutionizing influences on the fashions and selecting dolls that perfectly embody the various styles, giving us a first hand look at the changing American dream. 425+ color photos plus some black & white. 192 pages.

From the Back Cover: A unique look at America's favorite doll icon correlates fashion trends with the makeup and hairstyles that the Barbie doll wore between 1959 and 1971. A close inspection of the doll, rather than just her clothes, gives insight on how her face was painted, how her hair was styled and all of the influences that kept her a fashion statement during the changing beauty developments from the Kennedy era through the Mod 1960s. Interesting and informative, with fabulous photographs, Face of the American Dream will delight anyone who ever played with a Barbie doll, and for those who didn't, it is fun to read as a mass culture documentary about changing beauty trends.
