Product Description


Since making her first doll in 1989, artist Nancy Wiley has earned recognition and accolades both within and outside of the doll field. Her stylise and imaginative figures have been featured in magazines such as Mary Engelbreit's "Home Companion", "In Style" and "George", as well as all the major doll-making publications. The book showcases 85 of the Nancy Wiley's dolls in full colour photos, organised by theme and presented with insightful commentaries from the artist, and includes a step-by-step photo essay that demonstrates the development of one doll from start to finish. The collection includes several pieces created for debut at the artist's one-woman show held in Iowa in 2004. The author is a long time writer and researcher in the field of contemporary artist dolls and has extensively interviewed Ms Wiley's family, friends, colleagues and critics to create an engaging biographical profile that traces the evolution of this dynamic artist.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Nancy Wiley is tops in her field. Her creativity is awe inspiring. You can't help but exercise your imagination when thumbing through this book. The incredible color pictures and the journey into her mind is invaluable material for want to be doll makers. Don't want to make dolls? This book is still a great exercise in opening your mind to the world of true creativity. I have been eyeing this book for two years. I couldn't find it in the library so I am thrilled that Amazon offered it.

5.0 out of 5 stars extremely happy 4 May 2009
By J. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
what a fabulous book on a great 'doll' artist! I am so happy that I fell into the artist's site and that Amazon had this book available, along with the other book Amazon suggested. Both books are terrific for the dollmaker, very inspiring! Also, I received them very quickly, which I appreciated.
