Precious Playthings:
An Illustrated History of Black Paper Dolls,The First Two Hundred Years
(A WORK-IN-PROGRESS)
by Arabella Grayson
 
Precious Playthings: An Illustrated History of Black Paper Dolls, The First Two Hundred Years tells the history of paper dolls and how they played a role in reinforcing racial stereotypes; features Black paper dolls created in the United States, Canada, Africa, and Europe; and highlights the stories of several of the notable illustrators who created them, as well as the fictional and real characters immortalized in paper doll format. For paper doll collectors there are newly commissioned dolls created specifically for this book and for young and old alike, a fascinating story of an overlooked history. The work is the culmination of ten years of focused research and a lifelong quest for an understanding of America’s racial history.
