Paper Doll Review Issue #55

Another wonderful, richly-illustrated issue produced by Marilyn Henry and Jenny Taliadoros:
--Tamara Gerard on the charm of circus paper dolls and toys.
--David Wolfe brings his special touch to a profile of Ann Blythe!
--I learned so much from Marilyn's profile of illustrator Edna Cooke, and her overview of paper doll pets was fun.
--Jenny's excellent "Journaling with Paper Dolls" reminds us that she brings her artistic flair to many other endeavors.
-- Marilyn takes us deep into "Doll Town" and shares her thoughts on what the paper doll set tells us about life in the U.S. in the 1930s. An absolute delight.

And to top it off, Joan Blondell and Asta by Karen Reilly.

  3. I recall someone on the paper doll bulletin board asking if there was a Joan Blondell doll. I pondered drawing one myself but have not yet mastered realistic persons. Thank you for the post.
