Being a sucker for everything of the Regency period, I bought Tom Tierney's FASHIONS OF THE REGENCY PERIOD PAPER DOLLS with the hope that it can acquaint me with the odd-named clothing items at the time. I was not disappointed.
In the book we are introduced to George, a young lord who is a fastidious dresser, and his intended, Jane, both of whom display a variety of dazzling outfits for different occasions. These paper dolls are not just for kids-they are wonderful for anyone who, like me, has a hard time visualizing what a Carrick coat or sleeves "edged with swansdown" actually look like.
Are you interested in knowing what Piccadils are? Or what is the proper attire for an audience at Regency court? Get a copy of this book and you'll find out!

This book is full of excellent costumes to fit every ocasion, and use. Balls, walks in the park, traveling, court presentations; "George and Jane" are prepared for it all. The dolls have been great fun and very useful for everything from period dioramas to costume ideas. Even the undergarments on the dolls are apropriate for the period. Certainly my favorite of the Tierney's I own.

I enjoyed this book, but it would have been really helpful for the author to have just given a couple of lines on each page to describe the outfits. For example "Silk ballgown, 1812" or "Muslin pelisse 1815," would have made this book more than just a child's cut out toy. Just a few words on the page would have made all the difference and given this book historical weight...and a fun learning experience. A real shame.

These paperdolls are definately great gift material, and not just for children. I'm very interested in costume and these illustrations are wonderful. He gives accurate color representations of the periods and well as a delightful narrative!! A great learning tool for school-aged children, it illustrates the fashions of various periods in history. Tom Tierney has a large selection of different eras in history from Eygptian times to the present. Also good for collectors of various memorabilia, with Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and Princess Diana, etc. featured.
