Doll books for sale

Jun 23, 2012 in Books

I cleaned out a bookshelf and am selling these three books. The first two are $15 each and the Francie book is $30. Shipping to the US is $13, within Europe 10 euro and within Sweden 36 kr. All books are in as new condition.

E-mail me if you are interested!


The Lovely Pose Doll by Ayumi Uyama

About Japanese “pose dolls”, also known as Bradley dolls, from the 60s and 70s. Some information (in both Japanese and English) and lots of beautiful photos.


U-noa Freak
A book about the Japanese ball jointed doll U-noa. Many photos and instructions on how to paint them, put them together and make clothes for them, with patterns included. All text is in japanese but the instructions are step by step with photos of every stage.


Francie and her Mod, Mod, Mod World of Fashion by Joe Blitman

A collector’s reference book of all of Francie’s outfits and accessories with colour photos of each one.

I was going to sell these books on ebay, which I haven’t used for a while, but apparantly they’ve gone insane and won’t allow international sellers to list actual shipping. They now force you to list a very low shipping price which probably is the standard rate within the US. Crazy.
