Project Statement


This book contains a series of small vignettes that are only a few sentences long. The vignettes mainly contain a brief dialogue interrupted only by descriptive, telling details of the speaker or the spoken-to. Each vignette appears on the left hand page, and is accompanied by a photographed image of various dolls and figurines. Usually one male and one female doll are posed within the image, but on occassion there is only an individual doll.
