In the pages of Beyond the Valley of the Barbie Dolls you will view beautiful, whimsical and tasteful photographs paying tribute to my Barbie collection. As you will see I’m not your typical Barbie collector. I often remove them from the box, change their fashions and hair, then play, display, and photograph them. Some of my photos have Barbie and best friends posed on the shelves in the collection. While other photos have the dolls on beaches, atop mountains, alongside canyons, in the park, at the swimming pool, and just about every place around my California home. So you see, you don’t have to climb Mount Everest to reach the Valley of the Doll. You just have to climb Cowles, the highest mountain in San Diego, to go Beyond the Valley of the Barbie Dolls!
Over thirty years in the making and thousands of dolls collected, Beyond the Valley of the Barbie Dollsis best-selling pop culture author (From ABBA To Zoom), renowned toy collector, and doll photographer David Mansour's touching tribute to his Barbie collection through beautiful and mesmerizing photographs.
