This new double-sized paper doll book is a labor of love by Norma Lu with 16 pages of outfits rendered so meticulously that you can almost feel the luxurious fabrics and extravagant trims of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. There are gorgeous ball gowns, smart daytime outfits, a wedding gown and a negligee, all captured with exacting detail that will delight serious fashion historians and charm paper doll collectors. Each outfit is annotated.

Gibson Girl Paper Dolls (Dover Victorian Paper Dolls)
Gibson Girl Paper Dolls (Dover Victorian Paper
During the first quarter of this century, the pen-and-ink illustrations of Charles Daba Gibson (1867‒1944) set the tone for illustrators everywhere, and their intrinsic charm continues to captivate. A brilliant social satirist and later an accomplished painter, he put his indelible stamp on an era with his lovely creation, the Gibson Girl.With unusual deftness, directness and economy of line, Gibson, barely in his 20s, idealized the glamor and sophistication of the American woman in masterly pen-and-ink drawings. The appeal of his beautiful, animated young ladies was instantaneous — and universal — and the Gibson Girl's manner, hairstyles and dress were eagerly imitated by women around the world. At home, his illustrations of the Gibson Girl swimming, golfing, boating, seemed to give impetus to the liberation of the American woman.For this lavish volume, artist Tom Tierney has painstakingly recreated the Gibson Girl as a paper doll, in full color, while retaining the essence of the originator's virtuosic pen strokes. This charming collection includes two Gibson Girl paper dolls with 24 exquisite period costumes and complete accessories: a stately presentation gown worn at the English court, and a bridal gown; tennis, golf, and bathing costumes; walking dresses and travel ou...
