UPDATE: I neglected to mention this is part of a 10-page set--one souvenir--in an envelope labeled "More Showtime." (Needless to say, this was not the first souvenir given out!) And this wasn't the only Ralph Hodgdon souvenir during the event. He worked overtime, and did a tremendous job.
Here's a flyer that Ralph gave out at convention, listing his many other paper doll coloring books as well as full-color paper doll sets for sale:

Our terrific emcee. Be sure to check out David's paper dolls at Paperdollywood and Paper Doll Review.
David also created an online interactive paper doll website as part of an exhibit celebrating the style of Iris Apfel at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass. On Jan. 10, in a round-up of 2009 highlights in the arts, the New York Times Style Section included a photo of museum visitors gathered around computer monitors to play with David's virtual paper dolls. Bravo, David!

Kwei-lin Lum writes that on Sunday morning, Gene's nephews set up an exhibit and entertained the group with childhood stories of Gene and his circle of artist friends, and a plastic castle he transformed into a more elaborate toy with a moat.
I had to leave early Sunday, so missed their presentation. But I'll be thinking of Gene on Friday night when I attend a marionette show at La MaMa in the East Village.

Jane Borg, Sandy Vanderpool and Linda Raynor. In these table shots, you get a glimpse of the centerpieces that Deanna Williams and her crew assembled for the banquets. Here, the one and only Liberace graces the table. Our menus were in the shape of a grand piano, with pop-up candelabra! Deanna is expert at visualizing paper construction.

The Fanny Gray Award went to Jenny Taliadoros and David Wolfe.
Jenny is the publisher of Paper Doll Review and Paper Doll Studio, of course. They are must-reads for collectors--and the magazines are collectibles, too. David's writing on the heyday of Hollywood glamor and the designers who made it happen has become a staple of Paper Doll Review.
Paper Studio Press as the publishing house for new and reproduction paper doll books.
Jenny's blog for more information, and great photos, too.
