With the rise of coloring books, other childhood favorites—like paper dolls—are getting revamped with grownups in mind. This modern spin features authors and artists, making it fun for both kids and adults. Best of all, it's educational—each page comes with additional information and trivia, so you can learn while you choose an outfit.

Author Kyle Hilton has two books: Literary Paper Dolls and Art History Paper Dolls. Each contains 16 different authors or artists with greats like Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci and Henri Matisse on the artistic side, and Edgar Allan Poe, Ernest Hemingway, and Virginia Woolf on the literary side. Each character comes with plenty of accessories (a spilled glass of wine for F. Scott Fitzgerald and an ocelot for Salvador Dalí). Just cut out the shapes and get ready to play dress-up.
