The World of Miniatures

If you think of dolls houses as usually being period houses, it’s time to think again! In this amazing compendium of miniature buildings, author Sarah Walkley looks at the many other styles of construction that are increasingly being created by miniatures enthusiasts including cosy cottages, modern loft apartments, churches, garden sheds, lighthouses and windmills. It even delves into the fantasy world of witches’ lairs, haunted houses and burrows for mice and bears.

Featuring a wealth of interesting and unusual models it showcases the best examples of the dolls’ house hobby to demonstrate what can be achieved when working in miniature. It aims to provide inspiration to those that are new to the hobby, or want to take their model making a stage further, as well as being a delightful read for those who are simply fascinated by all things miniature.

Each of the 12 chapters will be accompanied by tips on the key techniques needed to recreate a particular style of property. This will include, for example, how to lay wooden floors or work with moulding to create a grand country estate, or how to install lighting in a lighthouse.
