Format: Paperback
In Miniature Style II is a high quality soft-cover book with 130 pages of over 40 easy to read how-to projects for beginning miniaturists and pro's alike. The book measures 8x10" and includes many beautiful color pictures throughout. Christine Verstraete is a master story teller and adds a special flair to the articles which make them a joy to read. At least twelve miniature artists have contributed to this book including Chris herself who has a vast knowledge of miniatures. Articles include tips for designing your miniature project, meeting professional doll artists, how-to's for structures, furnishings, flowers & decorating, foods, soft goods, and miniature doll clothing including patterns. If you love miniatures this book is a must for your library.

Miniature Style II has some truly wonderful miniature projects. I'm looking forward to making the adorable dress from the famous doll artist Lucie Winsky. Some other projects I am excited about are the Tudor furniture by Lori Rosemann, An Olde-World Finish by C. Verstraete, Fun Frugal Flowers by Lori Rosemann, and the Hand-crocheted Afghan by Mary Ann Bresnahan. The instructions are easy to understand and the color photos are nice and large. If you love making miniatures, you can't go wrong with this book.

Got this for myself for Christmas as ebook, and couldn't get off the computer reading it. It is well written and easy to understand, even for someone who is just starting out.

I'm sure I'll add this to my printed reference library soon as well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book with lots of pictures and easy to understand projects for people who work with miniatures. There are clearly defined chapters with many different types of scenes and ideas as well as step by step instructions to make many of the included miniature scenes. I got Chris' first book In Miniature Style, as an e-book and I am very glad I got this one in hard copy because it is great to have as a reference. Great job Chris!!!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Minis on the edge on May 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
I recommend this book because I truly enjoyed reading it and this book covers so many different topics in miniatures. Some of my favorites were the "How To" projects for, creating a porch scene, making wire and glue flowers, and how to make an easy chair and to dress and wig a store display bust. One of my favorites were done by Chris herself on how to create a vignette with an "Old World" finish. I had the opportunity to see it in person and I must say that this looks even better in person. This book was also delightful because it has several patterns to go along with the projects. No matter what your skill level is, you can create any of these projects for your dollhouse or vignette scenes in miniature. This book also covers different scales and even have patterns that goes along with the instructions to several projects. The final thing I really thought was wonderful is the fact that I can read and view it on my iPod Touch.
