Jim Howard's paper doll tribute to Ida Lupino, popular movie actress of the '30s and '40s who went on to become a pioneer female director in both movies and TV (where she also frequently starred).
This new book features two dolls, each one representing Ida with very different images. There is the young blonde beauty who came from London to Hollywood and then there is the sultry brunette who played tough types in film noir classics. The dolls have extensive wardrobes, meticulously researched and referencing the star's films and photographs from the Ida Lupino estate. Jim's stylish renderings of the dolls and the eight pages of clothes make this book a treasure for paper doll enthusiasts and the portrayal of the star plus a bio make this also a must-have for cinema buffs.
