LOULA LONG COMBS
by Johana Gast Anderton
for Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall
My dear departed friend, Johana Anderton was contracted to paint this portrait paper doll book of one of Kansas City's most important citizens, Loula Long Combs. The museum is housed in the Combs family city house. Loula moved to their country ranch/farm, to fulfill her personal interests in her horses and pets and to do her community works. A most interesting and diverse woman is lovingly represented by Johana, appearing in paintings of her real clothing and with her real animals. Costumes include her lovely wedding dress of 1917. Not all the 14 pages of costumes are shown above. There is extensive research in the bio also included.
Johana is noted for her reference book series on the Modern Doll, her many years of contributions to the doll world, and as a founding member/editor with The Original Paper Doll Artist's Guild. She has painted dozens of paper dolls for various doll and paper doll conventions and parties over the last 20 plus years.
Beautifully printed throughout on cardstock, with the covers being satin coated for durability. Stapled/perfect-bound, 9"x12" size. There is a stand for the doll, and a page of how to get the most enjoyment out of playing with and collecting paper dolls.
