Publishers Full Description:

The visionary Sasha Doll designed in the 1940s by Swiss artist Sasha Morgenthaler to teach humanitarian ideals has creatively engaged children and collectors ever since. The development of the Sasha Doll -- from models sculpted in the artists Zerich studio and first sold in December 1945 to the later manufactured vinyl replicas by Germanys Getz, Englands Frido/Trendon, and Getz again in 1995, plus a passionate but ill-fated American production attempt -- is examined in fascinating detail in this book. The authors share their first-hand knowledge of the later Sasha productions, as well as decades of primary research, including numerous interviews with those involved in the dolls history. They also trace the ongoing philosophical, aesthetic and technical issues surrounding the production of this beloved plaything. The result is a compelling, behind-the-scenes story that reveals the many complexities of producing the four generations of the Sasha Doll. More than 250 color photos, including many Sasha Studio dolls shown for the first time in print, make this book a must-have for lovers of this enigmatic doll.
