A new Ida Lupino paper doll book featuring the star at her career peak in the 1940s and costumes of that period is to be created by famed fashion illustrator Jim Howard. The artist's extraordinary talent will no doubt perfectly capture the star's strong feminist character and cinematic glamour as well as an exquisitely executed vintage wardrobe for the paper dolls.
The Ida Lupino paper doll book is scheduled to be published by Paper Studio Press in 2010 and will be available from Paperdoll Review, Amazon.com, specialty websites and catalogs as well as selected stores and shops
