Japanese Kimono
Paper Dolls in Full Color

By Ming-ju Sun
1986, 16 pages, Paperback.
Japanese Kimono: Paper Dolls in Full Color
Drawing her inspiration from 18th- and 19th-century Japanese woodblock prints by such masters as Utamaro and Hiroshige, designer and fashion historian Ming-ju Sun has created this exotic collection of 26 exquisite costumes with 2 charming Japanese dolls to model them. The kimonos display a broad range of lovely fabrics - from simple, practical cottons to luxurious silks and satins - and a variety of traditional decorative elements - geometrics, florals, stripes, checks, plaids, animals, landscapes, Japanese characters and circular crests. All are sensitively illustrated with clean line and lush color in the style of Japanese woodcuts.

This entertaining and educational paper doll collection will be a favorite with children and collectors. As a full-color survey of the Japanese kimono as an art form, the volume will be valued by costume designers, students of the history of fashion and the many people fascinated by Japanese art and culture.

Hawaiian Girl and Boy Paper Dolls

By Yuko Green
1997, 8 pages, Paperback.
Hawaiian Girl and Boy Paper Dolls
Traditional wardrobes for the two dolls (shown on the gatefold cover) include 32 colorful, accurately rendered costumes, among them a popular flower-patterned "aloha" shirt and a loosely flowing, floor-length muumuu. For the boy, there are also outfits worn by a Kala'au (sticks) dancer, a warrior, a royal attendant and a tattooed chieftain; for the little girl, there are grass-skirted hula costumes, a simply wound pa'u (sarong) and long floral print gowns. In addition, both figures can also be dressed in apparel worn by King Kalakaua and Queen Lili'uokalani, the last royal rulers of the Islands.

Accompanied by a brilliant array of headwear and floral accents, these charming dolls and their colorful attire will fascinate paper doll fans of all ages.
