Assouline has released a Barbie fashion book to celebrate the iconic doll's 50 year anniversary.

The book, which chronicles and celebrates the doll's 50 year history, is appropriately called “Barbie." Some of the dolls featured in “Barbie Fashion Book” are “Sexy Barbie” and “Barbie in the City." The tome comes with pictures of Barbie that can be removed and framed.

Created by Yona Zeldis McDonough, the 128 page book will set you back $500.

Implications - IS THE FOCUS HERE NOSTALGIA OR CELEBRATING A COMPANY'S ACHIEVEMENTS?

Businesses can celebrate their successful businesses and generate new customers by reminding consumers of their achievement throughout the years. Consumers find a comfort in things they know and are familiar with and memorializing products is a great way to feed on nostalgia while showcasing the many great products a company has released in the past.
