DOLLS' HOUSES:
Domestic Life and Architectural Styles in Miniature From the 17th century to the present day

Authors: Olivia Bristol, Leslie Geddes-Brown
Hardcover: 168 pages
Publisher: Mitchell Beazley, 1998
Language: English


Dolls' houses have fascinated children and adults for centuries. From grand 16th century baby houses to mass-produced 1930s cottages, these enchanting miniature homes have a timeless appeal, while also reflecting the architectural styles of their period and providing a unique and revealing approach to social history. With over 400 full-color photographs, Dolls' Houses captures the magic of these pieces. It is a beautifully illustrated and authoritative guide written by Leslie Geddes-Brown, dolls and dolls' house specialist at the leading international auction house, Christie's.

While other books have concentrated solely on dolls' houses and their contents, this book places each house in its social context, creating a comprehensive history of domestic life in miniature. The book uses dozens of pictures and photographs of contemporary houses and interiors to illustrate the important influence of actual buildings on dolls' house design. It also traces the rise of 'fantasy-style' dolls' houses during the 19th century and reveals how, by the mid-20th century, dolls' house design had become inspired more by the past than by current styles.

Four double-page gatefold spreads highlight the most important and interesting dolls' houses in the book. In addition to a photograph of the exterior and complete interior of the house, these spreads include detailed shots of its dolls, furniture and fittings. Sixteen other houses throughout the book are given special attention in double-page features. Includes information on the house's measurements and country of origin, date of manufacture, maker and material used.

THE DECORATED DOLL HOUSE:
How to Design and Create Miniature Interiors

Author: Jessica Ridley
Hardcover: 128 pages
Publisher: Grove Press, 1990
Language: English


Jessica Ridley has miniatures in her genes. After all, her grandfather was the designer and builder of Queen Mary's Dollhouse. :-) She is a miniaturist and faux painting artist who incorporates her specialty in her projects, giving the reader alternatives to the usual approach to dollhouse decorating -- namely siding for the exterior and wallpaper for the interior.

She teaches techniques for faux finishes, customizing and building furniture and accessories, as well as using interesting and unusual materials. The instructions are illustrated with plenty of color photographs, so you can see how the project looks at the different stages.

I highly recommend this book because I think that it stirs up your creative juices and inspires the miniaturist to try something new and personalized in their projects, while at the same time saving money. Who could ask for more!
