The Doll Collection Excerpt :

The Doll Collection is exactly what it sounds like: a treasured toy box of all-original dark stories about dolls of all types, including everything from puppets and poppets to mannequins and baby dolls. Featuring everything from life-sized clockwork dolls to all-too-human Betsy Wetsy-type baby dolls, these stories play into the true creepiness of the doll trope, but avoid the clichés that often show up in stories of this type. Master anthologist Ellen Datlow has assembled a list of beautiful and terrifying stories from bestselling and critically acclaimed authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Seanan McGuire, Carrie Vaughn, Pat Cadigan, Tim Lebbon, Richard Kadrey, Genevieve Valentine, and Jeffrey Ford. The collection is illustrated with photographs of dolls taken by Datlow and other devoted doll collectors from the science fiction and fantasy field. The result is a star-studded collection exploring one of the most primal fears of readers of dark fiction everywhere, and one that every reader will want to add to their own collection. Stories in this anthology by: Stephen Gallagher, Joyce Carol Oates, Gemma Files, Pat Cadigan, Lucy Sussex, Tim Lebbon, Seanan McGuire, Carrie Vaughn, Stephen Graham Jones, Miranda Siemienowicz, Mary Robinette Kowal, Richard Bowes, Genevieve Valentine, Richard Kadrey, Veronica Schanoes, John Langan, Jeffrey Ford At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Meet Dolly, Polly, Holly, Lolly, Jolly and Molly, new fashion paper dolls Dollys and Friends. You can begin creating your collection of paper dolls with this book which has 3 paper dolls and more than 40 outfits in 1940s styles of fashion. This book is a perfect gift for fashion historians, fashion enthusiasts, costume history lovers, paper doll collectors or anyone interested in 1940s. Please be aware that these paper dolls require careful hand cutting. For adults, paper dolls may be a gateway to childhood memories but they also make great gifts for children. Younger children may need the help to cut these dolls out since the dolls and clothes are not perforated. However, this is a nice opportunity for fun family time. Paper dolls can bring adults and children together, and collections of paper dolls have always passed down to younger generations. New generations can learn a lot while playing with paper dolls. In a digital era where dress up games allow us to change clothes on paper dolls by only touching a screen, cutting these dolls the traditional way is a great help for developing motor skills. Playing together also helps to develop communication and cooperation between friends and family. Playing games goes hand in hand with storytelling, role-playing and fantasy so everyone can treasure the time spent playing with these paper dolls as memories full of creativity and imagination. Paper dolls have a long history, and although inspired by antique and vintage paper dolls, Dollys and Friends are modern fashion dolls. Still, most of their wardrobe pieces are vintage fashions or period costumes. While these clothes are created after research, each outfit may not be authentic for that time period. Although there are many costumes and designer fashions for vintage themed books, it is still best to describe them as inspired by historical periods but not exact period costumes. Especially undergarments are more modern for the dolls to be used with different wardrobe choi

Only rarely do collections appear with such significance that they can rightfully be labeled legendary or lodestar. Or "Landmark". Which is the auction title of the collection of Margaret Lumia. Chosen with a discerning eye, acquired with a dogged persistence, and nurtured carefully during their time in her care, her dolls offer today's collectors a rare opportunity to see - and, perhaps win - a magnificent treasure from time past. The collection ranges from fine early wood and paper mache to superb French bébés and poupées, to the rarest of the German bisque art characters, mostly all in original costumes. There are dollhouses, early doll furniture, and more.
