Double Take, Part XVIII

While some of us take time to celebrate the holidays (…and some of us are in the midst of moving!), here’s a double take for your enjoyment. We promise a blitz of very exciting posts coming the start of the year, including a great giveaway.

Toy Monster: The Big Bad World of MATTEL by Jerry Oppenheimer was published by Wiley in February of 2009. We get a nice close up of Barbie’s eyes.

My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters by Sydney Salter was published by Sandpiper in April 2009. This time we get all of Barbie’s face (with special emphasis on her eyes, of course).

I like both of them for different reasons. I feel like both fit their books very well, as the first looks like a book ready to make some big disclosures, and the second one fits because, well, it’s nice to not have an image of a real person’s supposed big nose (thereby setting an artificial standard).

Do you prefer one over the other?
