When I saw this book posted on Super Cute Kawaii, I had to order it. The Doll Scene* contains 235 pages of beautiful custom doll photography, from candy cute to majorly macabre. Recognize the doll on the front cover? She's a Caramelpop, by Sheena Aw, whom I interviewed earlier this month!
*If you're ordering off Amazon, don't forget to order via Amazon Smile so a (small) portion of your purchase is donated to charity!
There are 25 doll artists featured in the book, from various countries. Each artist gets one background/description page (like Cocomicchi below) and then several pages displaying their art dolls. The Doll Scene is primarily a photography book, with just a short intro and the artist statements.
Blythes and Pullips are my favorite dolls, so the pages I photographed below only feature those two types of base dolls. However, there are other dolls represented in the book. As a heads up, there are a few dolls that tend toward the creepy side as well as some topless dolls.
Here are a few of my favorites pages! Would've included Caramelaw if I hadn't already post a lot of her dolls in the interview. :)
Overall, I loved The Doll Scene and highly recommend it! I just went and added a few of the artists that I didn't know about previously to my Etsy favorites/Facebook likes. :)
