My Dolly’s Home by Valentino Pucci Chanel—November 3, 2019--original blog post

A pretty cool children's book, 98 years old.

A proto-pop-up book. That gate opens.

An imagined space in which a story of a Dolly name Betty has her existence.

See the little cabinets. They open.

This book seemed to want Mexican penance figures, Euro-models, and engraved animals.

Interactive. The fence swings.

Betty swings. Dolly, too.
