(NORTH, Oliver). FARAONE, Jim
(n.p.), J. Faraone, 1987. An Oliver North paper doll. Drawn, printed, hand-cut, (i.e. "shredded"), and signed by Jim Faraone, founder of the International Fashion Doll Convention. A political statement, taking aim at National Security Council staff member Oliver North, who, with his secretary Fawn Hall, shredded documents that presumably would have implicated him in the Iran-Contra scandal (the selling of arms to Iran to fund Nicaraguan rebels). A reminder of simpler times in political corruption, when it sufficed to simply hide the truth, as opposed to fabricating new truths and then fighting for them. 8-1/2" x 11". Bottom edge shredded by design; fine. No copies listed in OCLC. [#034903] $200
