R1TA H as Carmen
Restored 1948 Book
What a gorgeous book this is! Restored 1948 Saalfield book; Cover art (and most likely costume art too) by famed cover artist, Bradshaw Crandall. One of my favorite artists! The portrait of the star dancing on the cover, and the 2 dolls are beautifully proportioned with pretty faces. The clothes are FAB!!! What movement! What colors! Handling of fabric textures is super. Say, did I tell you how beautiful this book is? :-)
The book is an accurate repesentation of the clothes Rita wore in Columbia Pictures, The Loves of Carmen.
There are two dolls on the two 80# cardstock covers, and 8 glorious pages of festive costumes on 32# laser paper. All archival, top grade laser Hammermill papers. Book is finished stapled size of 8.5" x 11" stored in a crystal clear Mylar seal-top bag.
