A recently acquired set of homemade folk art paper dolls from the 19th Century with collaged women's faces from period fashion magazines. This gives me the opportunity to link to the Folk Art Magazine article Costumed by Hand: Yesterday's Best-Dressed Paper Dolls, which illustrated numerous folk art paper dolls which used to be owned by yours truly. The essay by Francine Kirsh, I believe, remains the best piece on paper dolls which were made by hand, not those from commercial sources. Enjoy!
