First edition, first printing. Fully intact and uncut copy.
15 uncut color costume pages with captions.
2 uncut color Divine pages on heavier paper.
1 page of instructions.

Covers are still bright and shinny. Very minor bend to cover and pages at top left corner. Shelf wear and a few very shallow marks to cover.  Pages are crisp and clean. Very good ++ condition. 

Designs and illustrations by Van Smith, costume designer and make-up artist for most of John Waters’ movies and member of the “Dreamlanders”.  The book features Divine, the iconic drag queen and frequent collaborator of filmmaker John Waters. A rare and collectible item among fans of Divine and John Waters' work. 

The book allows fans to dress up a paper doll version of Divine in various outfits, reflecting the flamboyant and boundary-pushing drag style that made Divine famous. It serves as both a playful tribute to Divine's larger-than-life persona and a unique piece of memorabilia from the underground film scene of the 1970s and 1980s.

Includes multiple outfits for the character Dawn Davenport in "Female Trouble", and at least one outfit from "Pink Flamingos". 

A radical publication for its time, it directly captures drag in book form.
