About this title:

Synopsis: Artist and movie buff, David Wolfe, turns back the cinematic clock to the 1940s and 50s for a paper doll book dedicated to the glamorous and often lethal leading ladies of Film Noir. The dark and sinister movies popular after World War II starred tough guy anti-heroes who were always entangled with dangerous dames portrayed by stars like Lauren Bacall, Joan Bennett, Rita Hayworth and Barbara Stanwyck.

This sophisticated new book presents four femme fatale paper dolls who look sexy and chic in dozens of fashions from films such as Double Indemnity, The Maltese Falcon and The Lady from Shanghai. Included are seductive gowns, smartly tailored suits, playwear with pizzazz and sensational accessories. An essay by David explains the Film Noir genre and its fascination with fabulous '40s and '50s fashions.

About the Author: As a little boy growing up in Ohio, David was fascinated by his oldercousin's collection of movie star paper dolls from the 1940s and '50s.The glamour of fashion and film resonated with the artistic, bookishchild and set him on a path that would lead to a highly successfulcareer in the fashion industry.

The paper dolls and coloringbooks were put aside as David grew up. After graduating, he worked for a small town department store for a few years, and then moved to Londonwhen it was the hot spot for swinging 60s style. He became one ofEurope's leading fashion illustrators with work appearing in The London Sunday Times, British Vogue and Women's Wear Daily. He produced advertising artwork for fashion stores such as Selfridges and Liberty in London and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.

As the 1970s began, David added another dimension to his creativity whenhe became one of the world's first fashion trend forecasters. That jobtook him to front row seats at fashion shows in Milan, Florence, Paris,New York, Los Angeles and even Tokyo. He is today the creative directorof The Doneger Group, an important fashion consultancy firm based in New York City. His forecast presentations of incoming fashion trends areseen by designers and major retailers across the country. David alsoguest lectures on fashion's past, present and future at schools andcolleges including FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and LIM College in New York, as well as FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design andMerchandising) in Los Angeles. 

Having endedhis career as a fashion illustrator long ago, David is happy that paperdolls allow him to again create glamorous artwork. Since 2008, David has illustrated more that 30 paper doll books for Paper Studio Press. His recognizable style is a very deliberate re-creationof the lush, lavish technique employed by artists during the 1940s and'50s, the golden years of paper dolls.
