Doll lovers the world over covet the Bebe Bru, considering it the culmination of perfection in doll artistry.

Francois Theimer, legendary researcher of French dolls, begins the first of many books highlighting the French doll companies with The Bru Book. A labor of love and years of researching this firm results in an exciting work of delving into biographical accounts of originator, Leon Casimir Bru, and later owner Paul Girard. It examines technical and artistic patterns used in production and gives readers an interesting perspective of transitions over the thirty- year history.

In addition, collectors will benefit from a full appendix listing all patents issued by the Bru firm. All of this plus numerous color photographs make this and extraordinary addition to important doll research.
