"Valentino: The name conjures images of exotic costumes and lovely, submissive leading ladies. Appropriately, this life-like paper doll rendering of the immortal lover and 22 authentic costumes from his great roles, includes 10 different actresses in romantic pose. All in full, brilliant color on heavy stock ready to be cut out, these paper dolls and their sumptuous wardrobes permit the recreation of some of the classic film romances of the 1920's.
Tom Tierney's accurate, stylish costumes show Valentino as a Spanish dancer, tuxedoed dandy, Arabian prince, Maharajah, bullfighter, plus numerous historical incarnations. The minute detail, the fine portraiture, the flowing dress make this unusual paper doll collection a vivid, lasting book, not only for paper doll collectors, but for costume designers, period historians, and all addicts of screen romance."
