  3. GLADYS PARKER A LIFE IN COMICS, A Passion for Fashion

    Regular Price: $59.99

    Sale Price $52.50

    Explores the history behind Mopsy, the 1940s-60s comic strip star, who also was in her own comic book series, and her creator Gladys Parker! This beautiful book will also provide a rarely seen collection of Mopsy stories and many of Parker’s earlier strips. Parker was unique in comics. As with Frida Kahlo, it was impossible to tell where her art left off and its creator began. Parker mixed fashion and comics, also creating hand-made clothes for film stars--and the lovely and strong-willed Mopsy was an exact double for Parker herself. Learn More
