The hottest name in doll collecting today is Robert Tonner. At shops and shows around the world, collectors stand in line for hours to meet this popular fashion-designer-turned-doll artist. Stephanie Finnegan, former editor of Dolls magazine and author of Madame Alexander Dolls: An American Legend, extensively interviewed Robert and his closest friends and associates. This is the first book to tell his personal and professional story. Illustrated with all-new photos of Robert at home and at work, as well as family photos, this book also includes colour photographs of more than 200 dolls, from Robert's very earliest creations to spring 2000 introductions.
