Description - Big-eye Art by Blonde Blythe

In the late 1950s, throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, such artists as Margaret Keane, Gig and Maio created a new kind of mass-produced art known as 'big eye'. Now big-eye art has undergone a major revival, but with a twist: the wide-eyed, endearing waifs of the earlier movement have transformed into fairies, mermaids, demons and myriad otherworldly beings, including the famous 'Blythe' doll. This extraordinary book showcases the dazzling works of over 20 of today's most significant big-eye artists, offering an insight into a fantastical, sometimes bizarre, metaphysical world. Including over 150 captivating images, this book is a fascinating introduction to a cult art form, providing biographies, contact details and website addresses of the featured artists. It is a must-have for collectors of big-eye and Japanese anime and manga art and dolls, fans of fantasy and Gothic culture, and anyone interested in pop culture.
