Volume 12 explores the evolution of dolls. Over 65 years have passed since Hans Bellmer introduced ball-jointed dolls. In Japan, creative and hobby dolls have grown, mixed, and brought about a significant transformation. This feature looks into what the future holds as these different types of dolls come together and examines why people are captivated by them. It's a thoughtful exploration of artists' genuine passion for dolls.
