Jane Powell, the dainty little blonde whose superb coloratura soprano voice made her an instant star in the 40s and 50s is the latest subject to become a paper doll. First as a pretty teen-ager and then a lovely young woman, Jane Powell sang her way to stardom in many hit movies, notably A Date With Judy, Royal Wedding and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Although Jane Powell was the subject of several paper doll and coloring books in the past, this paper doll book featuring all movie clothes, is a brand new work by popular artist Marilyn Henry. When a teen-ager herself, the artist drew a paper doll of her idol, teen star Jane Powell which she saved over the years and presented it to the delighted star when the two met at last years National Paper Doll Convention. Now, decades later, Marilyn Henry is fulfilling a lifelong dream come true by creating a glamorous book including her many costumes from the stars hits films.
The Jane Powell Paper Doll Book, to be published in the fall of 2009, adds yet another star from Hollywoods Golden Age to the growing catalog of vintage-inspired publications from Paper Studio Press, and will be available from Paperdoll Review, Amazon.com, specialty websites and catalogs as well as selected stores and shops.
