9780688153311: Sister Sets: Sisters Whose Togetherness Sets Them Apart

Weaving a dazzling tapestry of photographs, paintings, movie stills, posters, ads, and other ephemera, Sister Sets is rich with sibling rivalry and anecdotal allure about sisters--famous, infamous and otherwise. Illustrations, many in full-color.

From Library Journal:

Heavily illustrated with over 130 pictures in 104 pages, Gwathmey and Stern's work is a compilation of quips, anecdotes, and recycled information about female siblings, real and imagined. There are famous sisters like Jackie and Lee, Olivia and Joan; fabled sisters like the Fates and the Furies; literary ladies like the Brontes and those little women, the March girls; songsters like the Lennon Sisters; twin sisters like the Doublemints or Abby and Ann; and that phenomenal sister fivesome, the Dionne quintuplets. This haphazardly organized holiday gift item is silly and full of one-liners and questionable facts. Gwathmey and Stern, who regularly publish lightweight collections of miscellany (Once Upon a Telephone: An Illustrated Social History, LJ 9/1/94), say they had "a good time" doing their research. Sorry, but this breezy salute to everywoman's sister is not recommended for most libraries.?Carol A. McAllister, Coll. of William & Mary Lib., Williamsburg, Va.
