Unlike her other fine books, which focus more directly on the art, design and mechanics of doll-making, this book is a loving tribute to a period, aesthetic and style of doll that she very much values, appreciates and knows well. And for that we can be thankful, as Oroyan has contributed so largely to the doll-making world, with her vision, her instruction, and her art.
Highly recommended as another fine book to add to the resource library of "students of the doll."
mrs.Oroyan must be a magician to write so many books,so variabile & so full of culture & reserch that is related to the art, craft, etc...
the book is reach, easy and wonderfull for the dollmaker! even
for the beginer! [...]
As usual, the photography is wonderful, so much eye candy, and all of it relevant to the subject. I purchased this on a whim, and have been totally enchanted, as always, by Ms Oroyans style and approach and her encyclopedic knowledge of her subject. Even if you never make one of these dolls, the book is a pleasure to read and look at.
I wish she could still be with us to produce more. I bought one for me and one as a gift for my friend.
