Calling all show girl wannabes! This is a fun scrapbook-style biography about Doris Eaton, the last Ziegfeld Follies dancer. There is much hair and outfit inspiration abound. It’s perfect for those ‘20s and ‘30s fans.

Wonderful, joyful, fascinating. Writer/author Lauren Redniss has created a fantastic new form of biography. Using hand-designed text, original art, photographs and collage, she tells the story of the last star of the Ziegfeld Follies, who had an amazing one-hundred-year plus life. A total delight!
