Mail Order Fashions of 1934
Designed by Judy M Johnson
A Book from FMN Publishing
This is a modern way to make paper dolls from old catalogues. Judy finds a pretty figure in the underwear pages, then adds any missing parts (as they are often cut off in the print.) Then she searches her stash of old catalogues in the right dates, scans several full color pages and sends them to her computer. Then selecting a variety of costumes, Judy does her magic, moving sleeves, filling spaces, adjusting size and proportions, and all to make the clothes fit the doll...and after many hours, Voila! A new paper doll. She has included descriptions and prices. Don't we wish they were like that today! These clothes are from the 1934 issues of: Chicago Mail Order Co. and Bella Hess catalogues.
Six pages with eleven costumes, including several hats.
This is a stapled BOOK. We are delighted to present this "perfect bound" (stapled) book from Forget-me-Not Publishing (FMN). These are 11”x17" sheets printed in permanent laser colors, on top grade papers, folded and stapled to a finished size of 8.5x11. Costume pages are on Bright white archival 32# laser paper. Covers are on archival 80# laser cover stock paper. These papers are a dream to cut...nice clean edges, no popping of inks, very smooth and fun to handle. We slip the book into a crystal clear archival protective Mylar sleeve to keep it nice and clean.
