Paperdoll Review

In 1985, OPDAG introduced it's first themed newsletter. A theme was offered for each subsequent issue to inspire artists to create new paper dolls for display in the newsletter. Since then we've covered a multitude of topics from ancient civilazations to fashions of the future. Although most back issues are unavailable for purchase, we thought it would be interesting to share the list of past themes. Now that our magazine is printed in full color, we might re-visit some of these topics.
