The latest issue of Cornerstones provides an excellent overview of black paper dolls through history. Deanna Williams has amassed a trove of images (many I've never seen before) and did her research, as usual. There is a beautiful color centerfold paper doll of the journey of a black man through history by Bruce Patrick Jones, a b/w doll of Diana Ross by Ralph Hodgdon and a b/w Barack Obama paper doll by Tom Tierney.
By the way, this issue has the latest installment of the Fruitland Chronicles by Felicita Hummingway. (Tom Tierney and Gene Maiden, welcome back!)
Single issue: $6. Subscription: $24 per year (four issues). Make check out to Cornerstones and send to Deanna Williams, 733 de la Fuente, Monterey Park, CA 91754.
