This is a wonderful book with many great ideas for making dollhouses. It explains each type of house from the most prominent eras. Tudor, Georgian, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian, and onward just to name a few. It is clearly set up and a joy to read. There are many great color pictures to go along with the text.

Pretty good book. It has lots of pictures and ideas in it for your own doll house. I wish that I had seen the table of contents before I bought it. It didn't have much victorian stuff in it.

Format: Paperback
It is such a relief to find a book that actually lives up to its name. I agree with the other reviews: this is a terrific book-a great reference book full of color photos and ideas for decorating your own dollhouse. I highly recommend this book for anyone with a penchant for miniatures.
With so many books available that are over 30 years old, it is nice to have a newer book, which are few, such as this available to peruse or keep on your shelf.

This is a great book to use for for researching any time period that you want to duplicate. There is so much information and so many pictures you just get lost in it. I highly recommend it anyone that wants to make any period room, or house. enjoy Nora

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent resource for ideas on furnishing and decorating your dollhouse. It has a small amount of information on construction of the house, but I wouldn't buy it for strictly that reason. What this book excels in is color photos of dollhouse rooms. I could have bought the book for the photos alone! But it also tells how to create many items, and how to decorate without cluttering the room. I love the book!

need to know.
