Thursday Tab- Monster Paper Dolls, St. Martin's Press, 1983, part 1





































This is a huge, and hilarious, and very well drawn, paper doll book. It has 14 pages of clothes and lots of other illustrations, so I'm going to spread it out over the next couple of weeks for your Halloween enjoyment. This was published by St. Martin's Press (not exactly known for their paper doll output) in 1983.

Those are pretty funny, especially the incongruous underwear!

I am struggling to imagine who their target market was!

joannamauselina- wait until you see next week's installment. It gets even better.

maire- I'm guessing it was me, in 1998

I've been following your blog for about a year - don't remember how I found you originally but I love your sense of humor, writing style and especially your spinning and knitting. Somehow I've come across a paper doll set, "American Girls Felicity Merriman and Her Old-Fasioned Outfits". The package has been opened and the doll cut out. Is this something you would be interested in? If so, just email me with a mailing address and its yours. Otherwise, it will go to Goodwill. Thanks! Maria from Kentucky

These are absolutely fabulous. I love the outfit which includes a limp damsel in distress.

Brings to mind the old "Dark Shadows" TV show. It used to scare the bejebbers out of me when I was a kid!
