 Paper dolls might seem the height of simplicity—quaint but simple toys, nothing more. But through the centuries paper figures have reflected religious and political beliefs, notions of womanhood, motherhood and family, the dictates of fashion, approaches to education, individual self-image and self-esteem, and ideas about death. This book examines paper dolls and their symbolism—from icons made by priests in ancient China to printable Kim Kardashians on the Internet—to show how these ephemeral objects have an enduring and sometimes surprising presence in history and culture.

Her name was Maria do Carmo Miranda Da Cunha, but to millions around the world she was known as the "Brazilian Bombshell" ... the very essence of Latin fun, verve and vitality. From her first American film appearance in a Betty Grable musical, "Down Argentine Way" (20th Century-Fox), 1940, to her final role with Martin and Lewis, "Scared Stiff" (Paramount), 1953, the irrepressible and irreplaceable Carmen Miranda sang and danced her way across the cinematic screen and into the hearts of an adoring public. Carmen was born in the small northern Portuguese town of Marco de Canavezes in approximately 1909. She was brought to Brazil as a young girl and it was there that she first entered show business. By 1939 she had made some four hundred recordings several Brazilian films, had become a household word throughout South America and a national idol in Brazil when she was "discovered" for the American stage. Her lively sambas, Carnival marches, unique stage presence, and highly demanding rapid-delivery numbers completely overwhelmed audiences. Hollywood immediately clamored for this four-foot, eight-inch dynamo of talent who wore three-inch platforms on her feet and an orchard on her head. Relive those exciting performances with a full-color Carmen Miranda paper doll figure and thirty-one gorgeous costumes from all fourteen American films, including: "Down Argentine Way, " 1940 "Week-End in Havana," 1941 "The Gang's All Here," 1943 "Greenwich Village, " 1944 "Doll Face, " 1945/6 "Copacabana," 1947 "Nancy Goes to Rio," 1948/50 "That Night in Rio," 1941 "Springtime in the Rockies," 1942 "Four Jills in a Jeep," 1943/4 "Something for the Boys ," 1944/5 "If I'm Lucky," 1946 "A Date withJudy," 1948 "Scared Stiff," 1953For film historians, nostalgia enthusiasts, or for a generation that has yet to discover the sheer joy of Carmen Miranda, noted artist Tom Tierney has accurately captured an extraordinary and unforgettable performer in all her mirthful and exotic splendor.

What do locks of Edgar Allan Poe’s hair, Sylvia Plath’s attractive handmade paper dolls, John Ford’s Oscars, and Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 cigars have in common? They are just a few of the fascinating objects found in the world-famous Lilly Library, located on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. In this beautifully illustrated A-to-Z volume, Darlene J. Sadlier journeys through the library’s wide-ranging collections to highlight dozens of intriguing items and the archives of which they are a part. Read about life and death masks of John Keats, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Dreiser; Walt Whitman’s last pencil; and vintage board games, mechanical puzzles, and even comic books. Among the more peculiar items are a pair of elk teeth and an eerily realistic wall-mount bust of Boris Karloff. Sadlier writes engagingly about the Lilly Library’s major historical collections, which include Civil War diaries and a panopticon of the war called the Myriopticon; War of 1812 payment receipts to spies; and the World War II letters and V-mail of journalist Ernie Pyle. This copiously illustrated, entertaining, and educational book will inspire you to take your own journey and discover for yourself the wonders of the Lilly Library.

LuAn Mitchell-Halter has been fortunate to be able to cut through the public's image of her as a "paper doll"--someone who is only defined by the clothes she wears--and release the core of her being. She has chosen who she is and what she decides to wear on life's journey based on her experience, instinct, and wisdom. In Paper Doll, for the first time, Canada's leading business-woman and philanthropist shares her story. LuAn tells what happened behind the scenes of her public life and offers sage advice to readers about breaking the barriers that others can build around you. LuAn's simple principles will teach you how to look for the answers within yourself to achieve personal success, regardless of whether others think you are sure to fail. She has learned that it is usually the fear of losing it all--money, pride, and stature--that can stop us from believing in ourselves, but the only genuine loss is when we fail to be authentic to our true selves.
