What people are saying about Gene's new book

There are books, of which this is one, that bridge the gap between collector and art. This book is art, the subject is Barbie. These photos are inspiring and emotive. The styling is impeccable and Mr. Foote’s GENEius is apparent with every turn of the page.

As I flipped through the pages, I had to remind myself that these were DOLLS, and not pics from a fashion magazine! All of the pics have such life to them! Wonderful job, Gene!


I have already read it twice… this is by far my favorite book ever written and photographed on Barbie period… this book is like spending an afternoon with Gene here in NYC visiting Barbie heaven …the styling is impeccable, and best of all you get to see Barbie through Gene’s eyes.


Your girls are looking beautiful!! I know this has been a dream of yours for a very long time, so happy to see it come to life for you! xoxoxoxox
