Our upcoming titles include works by some of today's favorite artists plus a reprint of the nostalgic 1951 Big 'n' Little Sister paper doll book featuring matching outfits for two sets of sisters.
Movie star paper doll books are instant collectibles and three top artists have turned their attention to legends of the silver screen.
Favorite paper doll artist Marilyn Henry has created a lovely ode to ballerina actress Leslie Caron with costumes from Miss Caron's biggest hits. Esteemed fashion illustrator, Jim Howard, has immortalized exotic Dorothy Lamour, the sarong-clad glamour girl of the famous "Road" comedies. And fashion expert and artist, David Wolfe, turns his attention to Doris Day's impact as a fashion icon and role model with a book featuring many costumes from her decades-long movie career.
More movie clothes can be found in David Wolfe's Hollywood Confections with some of the most outrageously gorgeous costumes ever seen on the screen. Each has inspired a matching culinary confection by dessert chef Archie Bridge, plus tips to make your own fancy dessert concoctions.
Making her debut with Paper Studio Press, Sandra Vanderpool's Masquerade Party captures the giddy glamour of a fancy dress party in the Roaring Twenties with themed costumes for four Art Deco dolls, all presented on lavishly designed backgrounds.
