The World of Miniatures

From Simple Cabins to Ornate Palaces

Sarah Walkley


In this amazing compendium of miniature buildings, Sarah Walkley looks at the many styles of construction being created by miniatures enthusiasts including cozy cottages, modern loft apartments, churches, garden sheds, lighthouses and windmills. She even delves into the fantasy world of witches' lairs, haunted houses and burrows for mice and bears.

Drawn from the wealth of interesting and unusual models that have been featured in Dolls' House Magazine, the book 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 includes tips on the key techniques needed to recreate a particular style of property. For example, how to lay wooden floors or work with molding to create a grand country estate, or how to install lighting in a lighthouse.
