Beyond Paper Dolls
Paper dolls have come a long way since my 1950s-era Lennon Sisters dolls! Beyond Paper Dolls: Expressive Paper Personas Crafted with Innovative Techniques and Art Mediums showcases the work of fifty-six contemporary artists, including that of the author, mixed-media artist Lynne Perrella. Technique details for each doll—from those made solely from paper to ones made with found objects, fabric, paint, and feathers—add insight into each artist’s creation.
