5.0 out of 5 stars Beginners Start Here!, 2 Sep 2002
This review is from: The New Dolls' House Do-it-yourself Book: In 1/12 and 1/16 Scale (Paperback)
If you know nothing about dolls houses, this is the perfect place to start. With a sideways nod to the importance of dollshouses for children, this is a book aimed more at the adult newcomer to the hobby. Rather than specialise in any one aspect (ie building, furniture or dolls) it gives an overview, with enough patterns and plans to get you building, furnishing and populating your own mini properties. As your knowledge and experience grow, this is a book you'll still want to keep to refer back to. For those of you who remember an earlier edition of this book focussing on 16th scale, you'll be pleased to know it now uses the popular 12th scale.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little dated but still useful for the enthusiastic builder, 7 April 2011
This review is from: The New Dolls' House Do-it-yourself Book: In 1/12 and 1/16 Scale (Paperback)
Great for the puritan who insists upon making taps out of earrings instead of buying miniature ones for pennies, but generally not for the majority of collectors who cannot bear the hassle of building things. Also pre-dates the web so the advice to cut stuff out of magazines has now been superseded by downloads and printing. Still, some useful tips and is packed full of plans for houses of all different styles and periods and lots of patterns for furniture. Would definately suit the more adventurous collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent starting-place, 17 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The New Dolls' House Do-it-yourself Book: In 1/12 and 1/16 Scale (Paperback)
This book is excellent for anyone wishing to build their dolls-house from the ground up. It is clear that the writers believe that a dolls-house is a labour of love, and they write in a clear instructional style without managing to be patronising. The book covers all the basics of dolls house design, construction and decoration. It offers advice on pretty much any aspect of the dolls house, and for any budget. Whether you want to buy all your furniture or fancy turning your hand to a bit of woodworking, this book covers both ends of the spectrum. It is an excellent place to start if you feel like building yourself a dolls-house but just don't know where to start. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels like designing their very own, personal dolls-house.
