Ballet, books, and books on ballet

Some ballerina and dancing penguin ♥ 
from my (tiny) ballet book collection. 

Paperdoll ballerina. (It's my sister, Nancy).

Penguins dancing… always a good thing.

Tamara Toumanova, 1934—from the book pictured below
The set designs and illustrations in this book are spectacular. 
I must scan more and share in a future post.
Detail from a Matisse sketch for the stage curtain for a Diaghilev production of Le Chant de Rossignol, 1934
