President's Day Feature: Late Greats Dolls

As we celebrate President's Day, I'd like to spotlight a handcrafted artist
who creates dolls from the likenesses of well-known people which, 
along with United States Presidents,
include artists, activists, writers and musicians.

Chen Reichert illustrates each one, then sews up a "stuffy historical figure."
The one thing that they have in common is that they're all,
well...deceased. Hence the title of her business: Late Greats.

George Washington

Theodore Roosevelt

Abraham Lincoln

Susan B. Anthony

Mahatma Gandhi

Mark Twain

William Shakespeare

Frida Kahlo

Freddie Mercury
