There are 17 different kinds of dolls covered in this book, from the basic little bag doll with a head, up to jointed dolls and also a more traditional "Waldorf" style of doll with soft limbs stuffed with wool and a shaped face with painted eyes and sewn on hair. It's an excellent book, and I would have given it 5 stars, but the section on hair styles is short with only a few pictures and illustrations. If you already have doll-making experience, as I have, the hard part is the hairstyle and I think this subject is better covered in the book Kinder Dolls. In that book, many different hair styles are covered in detail, with illustrations for the steps of each one. A good covering of hair, styled appropriately, really make the dolls come "alive".
