Paper Studio Press, the publisher of vintage-style paper doll books, announces the addition of another star to the growing list of cut-out celebrities. Loretta Young, the Academy Award winning actress and television star, will be the subject of a new paper doll book to be created by Marilyn Henry, an artist well known for her many movie star paper dolls. The artist's attention to detail and absolute accuracy in rendering the costumes worn by stars will make this new book a real collector's item.
Loretta Young's career spanned more than four decades, and the elegant star was always a fashion plate. She began in silent films as a teen and by the '30s, she was a glamorous young ingenue who matured into a actress of great warmth and charm in the '40s. She won the Academy Award playing an idealistic Swedish farm girl in The Farmer's Wife.
One of the first major stars to venture into television in the '50s, Loretta Young became a fashion icon when she opened each weekly show by sweeping onto the screen in a beautiful gown. Marilyn Henry's paper doll book of this great star, including many of her film costumes and televison gowns, will be published by Paper Studio Press in 2011and will be available from Paperdoll Review, Amazon.com, specialty websites and catalogs as well as selected stores and shops.
