Back in 1959, Barbie arrived to take the world head on and has become a cult symbol today. This cultural and style icon has survived criticisms, wars, economic downturns and is truly a survivor. At about 50 now, Barbie is strong as ever and more in demand evermore.
In order to celebrate her 50th anniversary, the Assouline Ultimate Collection has been launched and it will surely be a great book with great pictures. Even today, every second three Barbie dolls are sold. The numbers are only phenomenal. If you had ever bought a doll, a Barbie in particular, you definitely must buy this book, which costs $500.
A little too much you may say, but it’s a collector’s edition and comes with 128 pages filled with 69 illustrations and history recounted. The book is covered with linen and looks fit enough for a queen.
