Synopsis : International superstar and high fashion model Blythe has never let the fact that she is literally a doll slow her down. Rescued from toy box obscurity with the publication of Garan's first book, This Is Blythe (50,000 copies sold), the 12-inch tall diva has been celebrated in the front windows of Bloomingdales; on the cover of Women's Wear Daily; on VH1's "I Love the '70s"; in People, the New York Times, and ad campaigns for Nordstrom, Sony, and trendy Japanese department stores. In Blythe Style, she shows off 100 to-die-for outfits created for her by top designers from around the world and photographed with colorful invention by Garan, including Gucci, Prada, Versace, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, John Galliano, Paul Smith, Issey Miyake, Vivienne Westwood, and dozens more, all for the sake of charity. Tres chic!
A propos de l'auteur: Gina Garan, a New York–based photographer and video producer, saw Blythe by chance and has been her constant companion ever since. Her photographs of Blythe have shown in London, Spain, Asia, and across the U.S. Junko Wong is president of Cross World Connections, a Tokyo-based agency that has been pivotal in returning Blythe to the spotlight she deserves. Blythe's eyes change color from green to blue to orange to pink at the pull of a string. Born in Cincinnati in 1972, she's a tireless world traveler who now divides her time between Tokyo and New York City.

Description de la librairie : Since its opening in 1991 within the premises of a small model factory at Alnwick Station, Barter Books has grown well beyond original expectations. Starting off in what was the ticket and parcel office of the original Station, the bookshop has expanded down the platforms and through the waiting rooms, until it now covers over one-quarter of the whole Station site. This translates into an area exceeding 8000 square feet and containing over 350,000 books on more than three miles of shelving. Now houses the Famous Writers Mural - 40 feet long by 18 feet high. The bookshop also sells secondhand DVDs, videos and music (CDs, LPs, cassettes, sheet music), as well as a small but growing section of artists' prints. And then there are the shop's many extra features! These include an open fire in the winter, coffee and cookies, a model railway running above the book columns, a mini-cybercafe, generous seating and browsing areas, a children's room, and dozens of glass cases containing many of the more interesting antiquarian books. A final note: during the enlargement process the owners took (and are taking!) particular pleasure in restoring, as they can, various features of the Station. This so far includes the original North Eastern Railway cast iron fireplaces, two of the Station clocks, a drinking fountain, and various waiting rooms. Most dramatic of all, however, was the restoration of part of the glass roof. That was when we all stood about watching as the sun came streaming in for the first time in many years to bring the wonderful old Station visually back to life. The very latest addition has been a forty foot mural celebrating the names of those who worked at Alnwick Station in its railway days - over 400 names plus the coats of arms of the three railway companies involved.
