Tom Tierney ( Fashion Artist )

While Tom Tierney might not be a household name to everyone, he is certainly well known among the fans of Dover Publications, especially their paper dolls and coloring books, plus the two great CD-ROM collections included here and a few postcards. I personally own over fifty of his various collections and they are all superb.

Unfortunately, there is little on the web about him as a person. Sadly, he passed away in July, 2014 at age 85. Dover had done a great interview with him a few years previous, and you may read that interesting article here.

Not only was Tierney a wonderful fashion artist, but he really did his research for authenticity. Whether it was designer trends for this century, or the clothing of Napoleon or the Pope or ancient Celtic barbarians, Tierney's figures are accurate and his text supplies further information. I will deeply miss the anticpation of enjoying his latest collection. And so it is here that I pay homage to this unique and talented artist and his creations.
