Description

Consummate doll collector and wildly successful author of This Is Blythe (Chronicle Books, 2000) Gina Garan rediscovers the chic and unsettling allure of doe-eyed “Susie Sad Eyes,” that triste, young, and neglected 70s fashion doll.

Susie Says features over 60 photographs of Susie on an ubër-fashiona- ble American tour in a range of styles and looks, from cobbled together and handmade, to vintage and found—with over a dozen uniquely customized Susies. Not enough for you doll lovers?! In Susie Says, sad, little Susie discovers her voice and breaks her silence. Each of Gina’s photographs are accompanied by Susie’s thoughts, the inspiring and hilarious bon mots of International superstar performer, Justin Vivian Bond (of Kiki and Herb).

“Gina Garan is a new master in a world where dolls rule. Her hypnotic photography, exotic locations, and styling seduce the eyes to orgasmic highs.”
—David LaChappelle
