Tom Tierney Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Paper Dolls
Artist Tom Tierney has created a meticulously researched and beautifully rendered paper doll collection of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1929-1994). There are five dolls, along with two figures representing her husbands John F. Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis. Accompanying the dolls are 27 costumes. The book captures Jacqueline's superb style and elegance. Of particular interest is the part of the book dedicated to the White House years and the beautiful reproduction of some of Oleg Cassini's gowns.
