Platypus Publications, New York

This page lists all the wonderful booklets and patterns (that I know of) that Colette Wolff put out during the 70's and 80's (she began Platypus in 1969) under her Publication Trademark Platypus Publications. At the bottom of the page, I've also listed all the Newsletters and Magazine articles she published (again, that I'm aware of!). This page was possible only by the generous sharing of Kristy Effinger's(who goes by Faery Lady in dollmaking circles!), Ruth Wilson's and Phyllis McIntyre's knowledge and personal collections of Ms. Wolff's works. This page is dedicated to these three ladies for their willingness to support and give substantial elbow grease to the building of this page! It would not exist without them. Thank you all.

Listings are more or less in Alphabetical order by Subject done in bold(er) letters:

Platypus Newsletter. Kristy and Ruth have some back issues of Ms. Wolff's newsletter they are willing to share, which published articles she didn't publish anywhere else like: how to make doll wigs in loose styles, a history of "Dolls by the Yard" (printed on fabric to cut out and sew), announcements of new patterns to her line and discontinuations of old ones, a small "freebie" pattern (baby's clutch-ball,), book reviews, announcements of dollmaking events, complete lists of her pattern and supplies lines, questions and answers from customers about making her dolls, descriptions/sketches of variations of her dolls from pictures that customers sent her (eg, a Veronica done as an American Indian.)

There didn't appear to be any particular periodicity(so I have no idea how many are missing from this list as many of the newsletters were hand stamped with the date the order they went out with, and not an overall publication date), and the format changed from 8"x5 1/2" to a full 11"x8 1/2". If anyone has more information of this newsletter they'd like to share with other Colette Wolff fans, please contact me at akamoraih[at]gmail.com! (and you know to replace the [at], right?) There's also a contact button at the beginning of the Main Bibliography page. I'd love to hear from you! Here's the list so far:
