Renowned artist Marilyn Henry has created a series of celebrity paper doll books to fit in with the classic paper dolls of the 1940s. The pages are beautifully designed with star photos and page decorations to enhance the wardrobes of movie costumes. Wonderful likenesses and expertly illustrated fashions have made Marilyn's paper dolls highly sought after by paper doll collectors and fans of movie memorabilia. Her current titles for Paper Studio Press include paper dolls of Marilyn Monroe and Ginger Rogers, Jane Powell, Leslie Caron and Loretta Young.
After a career as a fashion illustrator and art instructor, Marilyn is currently the art director and co-editor of the Paperdoll Review magazine.Review:
If you love any of the following, you'll love this new paper doll book: the artwork of Marilyn Henry, the movies of the 1950s, the fashions of the 1950s, or Esther Williams. Marilyn is a genius at recreating all of those things above! Actually, she's even better than those '50s artists! There is a wealth of fashions from nearly every film Esther was ever in ranging from sports outfits, day wear, evening attire, and (of course) a choice of swim suits for every occasion. My favorites are, of course, those least appropriate for normal life. With a figure maintained by Esther's swimming, the form-fitting evening wear can't lose! A gold one with a cascade of white flowers catches the eye. An elegant black one would catch eyes in any era, including today! A sparkling white one from Duchess of Idaho would be a smash even today. Marilyn s exquisite artwork, in reality, makes for a super visit to that nostalgic era. --Cornerstones, A Paper Doll Journal
