Josephine Baker, the Toast of Paris, to be celebrated as a paper doll!
She was born in poverty in St. Louis, but become a Parisian star in the Roaring Twenties and remained a show biz legend forever. Josephine Baker was an African-American beauty, a leggy dancer and
stellar personality with plenty of pizzazz. She conquered Paris with her exotic routines and her outrageously almost-nude costumes. She famously danced topless in a skirt of bananas and paraded her pet cheetah on a lead. Paper doll artist Bruce Patrick Jones has captured the star's unique appeal in a new book to be published by Paper Studio Press. There are 3 dolls depicting Josephine in the '20s with eight pages of flamboyant, fabulous, fantastic fashions.
