2012 is a Big Year for Paper Studio Press!

As I've been working on our Ultra Spectacular Catalog No. 19, I was astonished to realize that 2012 has been the biggest year ever for Paper Studio Press with 18 new titles!

Due for release in November are: Nancy Drew and Her Friends Paper Dolls by Darlene Jones, Merrie Christmas Paper Dolls by David Wolfe and a reproduction of the 1941 Jeanette MacDonald paper doll book. This trio of new books joins the 2012 record-breaking roster of paper doll books including: Carol Channing, Loretta Young, Fun with Grandma, Couture of the '50s, Deco Days Coloring Book, Patti Page, Heavenly Blue Wedding, Couture of the '30s, Steampunk Paper Dolls and Storybook, Veronica Lake, Palette of Paper Dolls, Paper Pals and Mod Pop.

The books are created by leading artists such as Tom Tierney, Jim Howard, David Wolfe, Marilyn Henry, Norma-Lu Meehan, Bruce Patrick Jones, Kwei-lin Lum, Charlotte Whatley and L. Hoerner. It has been a joy and a privilege to work with each of these artists and I'm thankful they've entrusted their work to Paper Studio Press.

In this era of high-tech toys and electronic everything, it is a little surprising to find that a decidedly low-tech, slightly sentimental pastime is having a comeback in popularity. Paper Dolls are back, those charming little printed people with their wardrobes of paper clothes attached to them with tabs. Our Paper Studio Press books, $12-12.95 each plus S&H, are available from paperstudiopress.com, paperdollreview.com, amazon.com, and some titles at turnerclassicmovies.com
