THE Book That Gave Blythe Dolls A New Life
I am sure you have heard the story about the Photographer who took a Kenner Blythe Doll, took a bunch of photo, published a book and made Blythe more famous than she was in 1972.
Gina Garan can be thanked, and should be thanked, for making the Blythe Doll so popular that they are now all over the world, and now we Blythe Lovers have such things as BlytheCons.

This Is Blythe, by Gina Garan
Here is a quote about the book: "Produced for only one year in the '70s, Blythe is a moony waif of a doll coveted by a growing group of devoted fans. Photographer Gina Garan fell to Blythe's charms and unusual looks years ago and has shot her in settings around the world, from Greece to Soho to Hooters. Hilarious, mesmerizing, and just a little spooky, This Is Blythe is the result of Garan's offbeat passion and a photography book like no other. Here's mod Blythe pacing through an art gallery; a pensive Blythe in a tiny blue fur parka, the sun flaring orange behind her; Blythe emerging from a block of ice. Is that Blythe telling her Christmas wishes to Santa Claus? Like stills for a film that hasn't happened (yet?), these undeniably beautiful photographs create an entire world from each flawless frame. A no-explanation-necessary gift for that special someone, This Is Blythe will enchant fans of witty photography and pop culture with a taste for the unexpected."
I bought my Copy from a Seller on ebay. The first copy, after almost a week of waiting, I got a note that it has 'sustained damage in the warehouse", I was NOT happy, nor humored. I told them to refund my money. And I went and found another copy cheaper AND in better condition than the first copy was listed for, before the damage.
