I just love paper dolls. Always have, probably always will. So when I saw this book, Kabuki Costumes Paper Dolls, years ago, that combines a few of my obsessions; paper dolls + costumes + kimonos, how could I resist?
The book has many costumes, each printed on a page that is blank on the back, ready to be cut out. Each outfit has a little piece explaining the role it is worn for.
Included in the book is one male and one female form in cardboard. Most of the costumes come with an accompanying mask or wig.
