Inhaltsangabe: Ruth St. Denis Paper Dolls by Norma Lu Meehan pay tribute to a great pioneer of modern dance early in the 20th century. Her fascination with Eastern mysticism led her to create dances inspired by Oriental philosophies.
This very special paper doll book spotlights eight beautifully rendered costumes created for dances that reference many exotic cultures including India and Japan. Two of the costumes feature Ruth St. Denis' partners, her husband, Ted Shaw, and a young dancer, Gene Maiden, who became a major force in the paper doll community.
Fans of modern dance history will enjoy owning this book, but so will everyone who appreciates exquisite artwork and loves paper dolls.
A collector's edition with a limited printing of 250 copies.
