Fabulous Fellini Paper Dolls

Yes, I'm at it again, working on too many things at once, that is. I was decorating a ruined castle keep doll house, when Fellini and his wife decided to take over my mind. I believe they are having a good time, at that. I've seen all of Fellini's films, even the ones never dubbed into English, and I can say that like the DARK SHADOWS Paper Dolls, I could work on these for years and never be done with them, so I will try to contain the extravagance, and keep this down to a small, reasonable book...  But, Fellini says, "Good Luck with that." I don't understand Italian. The cover features many memorable characters that are not likely to make it in the book, but, of course, Giulietta, as seen in La' Strada, will be there. So far, this is how I think it will be laid out: Dolls: Federico and Giulietta, Marcello Mastroianni and Anouk Aimee, (La Dolce Vita '60), White Clown, jumping jack, (Clowns '70), and Donald Sutherland with the dancing doll, (Casanova '76). The inside cover will be a set, probably out of Juliet of the Spirits, (maybe the ghost house), and the back cover will have Felliniesque quotes as well as instructions, and hopefully another miniature character or two...  I also wanted to add Satyricon, '69, The Whore of Rome, Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren, Anthony Quinn, and soo much more...  So, we'll see! It's sure to be a picturesque trip any way!
