A Helen Page Sweetheart
An original paper doll drawn and hand-colored by Helen Page, c. 1980s. This was one of my finds at Jayne Keller's party in the spring. This die-cut paper doll was part of the Margaret Menamin collection. If you click on the image and look closely, you'll see a small cut following the curve of the slip's bodice where the additional face can be inserted.
Jan McKay gave a presentation on the artwork of Helen Page at the Kansas City convention, and how I wished I could have made that one! Click here for Anne Donze's convention blog entry about Jan's talk. Wonderful photos, too.
