Paper Studio Press, publisher of vintage-inspired paper dolls, announces another star edition, a new Donna Reed paper doll book created by Karen Reilly. Born in Denison, Iowa, the lovely young woman went to Los Angeles to go to college and was signed to a movie contract. Her warm personality led to many roles including the Andy Hardy and Doctor Gillespie series. She is remembered best as James Stewart's wife, Mary, in Frank Capra's beloved Christmas classic, It's a Wonderful Life. In 1954 she won the Academy Award as supporting actress in From Here to Eternity. For eight years, beginning in 1958, Donna Reed starred in the eponymous TV show, which won a Golden Globe in 1963 and was nominated for four Emmys.
This new paper doll book will include dolls and a wardrobe of fashions worn by the star throughout her film career. Scheduled for release spring 2011, the Donna Reed paper doll book, is the latest addition to the roster of stars to be transformed into paper dolls by contemporary artists for Paper Studio Press, and will be available from Paperdoll Review, Amazon.com, specialty websites and catalogs as well as selected stores and gift shops.
