This paper doll book is titled, JOHN F. KENNEDY AND HIS FAMILY Paper Dolls in Full Color by Tom Tierney. The back of this book says, "He was the youngest man ever elected to the American presidency - and the youngest to die in office. His fashion-conscious young wife influenced the way millions of women around the world dressed, and their two children delighted a worldwide public that eagerly followed their daily activities. In his skillful rendering of President John F. Kennedy and his family, noted paper doll artist and illustrator Tom Tierney touchingly recaptures a few public and private moments in this immensely popular family's life. Six dolls representing the President, his wife Jacqueline, and two likenesses each of Caroline and John, Jr. are accompanied by 34 full-color costumes - including formal, informal, and everyday suits for the President; elegant evening wear and slim-line suits for the First Lady; and casual wear for the children. Also included are authentic accessories and personal items: Caroline's pony Macaroni, a pet terrier, John, Jr's baby carriage, and other articles. An informative introduction completes and inexpensive and lifelike collection that is sure to become a collector's item for young students of American history and paper doll fans of all ages."
