Creature Comforts: People and Their Security Objects (Hardcover)

Creature Comforts: People and Their Security Objects by Barbara Collopy O'Halloran with photographs by Betty Udesen. (Hardcover, excellent condition, dust jacket clean and untorn).

Almost everyone has a favorite doll, an aging teddy, or an unraveling blankie—either safely put away in a drawer or still lovingly tucked into bed at night. Adults and children alike treasure these creature comforts because they offer security, lifelong friendship, and the smell of home. Through striking black-and-white photographs and first-person accounts, Barbara Collopy O"Halloran and Betty Udesen tenderly document and reveal just some of the extraordinary magic found beneath the worn exteriors of a misshapen sweater, a winking dog, and even an earless rabbit named "Chickey."

Retail Value: $17
Starting Bid: $6
