Raggedy Ann is a fictional character created by American writer Johnny Gruelle (18801938) in a series of books he wrote and illustrated for young children. Raggedy Ann is a rag doll with red yarn for hair and has a triangle nose. The character was created in 1915 as a doll, and was introduced to the public in the 1918 book Raggedy Ann Stories. A doll was also marketed along with the book to great success. A sequel, Raggedy Andy Stories (1920) introduced the character of her brother, Raggedy Andy, dressed in sailor suit and hat (source: Wikipedia).

The disheveled appearance of the Raggedy Ann doll represents human fascination with laissez-faire wisdom and labor release and the artistic marketability of the sweet doll perhaps eccentrically reflects the philosophical value of maiden-anxious Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Death and the Maiden" (1994).

Are thy printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
