"Best Friends - Paper Dolls in Full Color" was drawn and developed by Queen Holden and copyrighted 1985. One of the most popular creators of paper dolls in the 1930s, Queen Holden was a celebrated artist whose early books delighted children and adults alike and to this day remain eagerly sought by collectors. The charm and sparkle of Mrs. Holden's illustrations are fresh as ever in this brand-new paper doll collection. Two adorable dolls, Kate and Charles, will win the heart of any child with their angelic sweetness, twinkling eyes and 31 carefully rendered outfits that accurately represent children's fashions of the thirties -- dresses of gingham checks and pretty colors with ruffles, pleats, and smocking details; his-and-her sailor outfits; snowsuits and button-up leggings; raincoats and galoshes; overalls; sunsuits; swimwear; pajamas and nighty; plus hats, sweaters, shoes, all the essentials and extras for any occasion. Adding more fun and fantasy are a pet puppy and kitten, teddy bear and toy dolls, all with their own cutout accessories.
Handsomely printed in full color on durable stock, this irresistible book will enchant children for hours on end. And this future collectible is one that paper doll collectors and fashion enthusiasts will want to save and savor. This vintage paper doll book has had the two dolls cut out and put in a zip-lock bag which taped the first page. There are some very small stains on a couple of pages on the bottom right corner but none of them are on any of the clothing or cut outs.
This lovely book measures approximately 12 1/4 inches by 9 1/4 inches and will be shipped Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
A sweet, un-used paper doll book for pretend play or to give as a gift to any paper doll collector.
