by Rachel Taft Dixon
Restored 1934 Whitman Book from FMN Publishing
Here's a beautiful classic book by beloved paper doll artist, Rachel Taft Dixon. It's hard to find a vintage book that is in great condition because of the way it was designed with a major edge (the band of costumed figures) hanging out...and gettng damaged. We have modified the book for fit an 8.5"x11" format, smaller and not so long-ish. The colors have been brightened from their age and darkened look of the 1934 Whitman original publication.
There are 6 pages of costumes for the four beautifully designed dolls. Fashion periods cover Medieval (13-1400s,) Tudor (1500s,) Stuart (1600s,) Colonial (1700s,) Empire (1800-10,) and Civil War Victorian (1860s.)

* and a two-page set painted by Judy, inspired by Dixon's Peasant Costume book. http://www.papergoodies.com/scripts/prodview.asp?idProduct=282
This is a stapled BOOK. We are delighted to present this vintage restored/reprinted "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. This new formatting may result in a reduction of 5 to 23% smaller than the originally published size. 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 seal-top bag to keep it nice and clean.
