The History of Denim Paper Dolls by Tom Tierney



Tom Tierney, the most published paper doll artist of all time, turns his attention to the most popular fashion fabric of all time, denim. In this fascinating new paper doll book, he traces the history of everybody’s favorite fabric, the cotton twill weave named for the French town where it began, Nimes. “De Nimes” (Of Nimes) soon became “Denim.”

This brand new eight page doll book starts centuries ago when sailors and pirates wore workaday denim. Later it was dyed with indigo and become the blue jean fabric so familiar to us all. Denim went from being utilitarian to high fashion and that fascinating swing from overalls and workwear worn by cowboys, farmers and factory workers to expensive designer blue jeans worn by rock stars and fashionistas.

Two dolls, a handsome guy and a pretty gal, are dressed in denim through the ages and the book includes the never-ending tale of fashion’s most famous fabric. Collectors of Tom Tierney’s artistry and fashion history fans, too, will be delighted with The History of Denim.
