We first caught sight of these awesome wooden dolls of favorite female writers thanks to Jezebel. Debbie Ritter’s Uneek Doll Designs on Etsy sells a collection of handmade characters from literary history. Debbie has given her permission to feature some of her hand-painted miniatures of the famous women authors we love (Judy Blume! Erma Bombeck! Madeleine L’Engle!) in the gallery below.
Pair one of these dolls with their matching book, and you’ve got the perfect gift, right? I checked and there is still time to order for Christmas! And for the non-readers on your list, the clever and very talented artist also sells dolls of celebrities, historical men and women, and famous artists. Neil Diamond, anyone? Hello!
