Trina Robbins

I had the opportunity to interview Trina Robbins more than a year ago for a Paper Doll Review article. She's a prolific writer, artist and herstorian. If it wasn't for Trina, I wouldn't have a clue about Gladys Parker (Mopsy Modes and Flapper Fanny) or Jackie Ormes (Torchy Togs).

Here are some of the Trina books I have in my collection, most of which are available for purchase on her Web site, www.trinarobbins.com

Nell Brinkley and the New Woman in the 20th Century
Paper Dolls from the Comics
Tomorrow's Heirlooms (Fashions of the 60s and 70s)
A Century of Women Cartoonists
From Girls to Grrrlzz: A History of Women in the Comics
Go Girl!: The Time Team
California Girls

When you go to Trina's Web site, be sure to check out the links on the left side of the page for T-Shirts, Trina's news, a Women's History Project and a number of interviews, including a podcast.
