"BALLET STARS OF THE ROMANTIC ERA - Paper Dolls in Full Color" was illustrated by Tom Tierney. This lovely paper doll book contains 16 "plates" with dolls and outfits in full color. There are 3 dolls with 29 dresses, suits, gowns, ensembles, and more.
From the back cover:
"Here are the influential Marie Taglioni as La Fille du Danube; Carlotta Grisi as Giselle, which would become the prototypical Romantic ballet; Fanny Elssler, the first world-class ballerina ever to appear triumphal in America, in La Gypsy; Fanny Cerrito as La Esmeralda; Lucile Grahn, a star of the Royal Danish Ballet, as La Sylphide; the legendary Lola Montez as a Spanish dancer; Jules Joseph Perrot, a major choreographer and the greatest male dancer of the Romantic era, in Giselle; and Augusta Maywood, the first American ballerina to have an international career, as The Maid of Cashmere.
To add to dance lovers' enjoyment of this exciting collection, artist Tom Tierney has included a fascinating introduction to the Romantic ballet and its stars, brief biographies of each of the dancers, and captions for each drawing."
This soft-cover book is in very good condition. The pages are uncut and bright. There is a crease on the bottom left side of the cover but it does not affect the dolls or clothing. There is minimal bumping on the book's corners and the binding is tight.
The book measures approximately 13 inches at the widest point and is 11 3/4 inches tall. The soft-cover book will be shipped with a cardboard backing and sent Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
This collectible paper doll book would be a great gift for any budding ballet star or dance collector.
