5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice and projects for beginers and advanced, 27 July 2001
This review is from: Beginners' Guide to the Dolls' House Hobby (Paperback)
I found this book a goldmine of information from the basics of choosing a style or period of house and what type, depending on costs. It has helped enormously in the decision of which house to choose. There is lots of advice and projects from decorating to making items. The author has managed to cover a vast amout of items including shops and childrens houses as well as the miniaturists period homes. Excelllent bibliography with lots of reference areas to follow up. Overall it is very readable and well illustrated and an ideal book to dip into for both the begginer as well as the more experienced miniaturist.

5.0 out of 5 stars A briilliant book for beginners!, 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beginners' Guide to the Dolls' House Hobby (Paperback)
As a newcomer to miniaturism, I found this book to be an excellent introduction to the practicalities involved in renovating and decorating my own miniature house.

This is the book to get BEFORE you start on your first house.

This book is an excellent resource that I will be returning to time and again throughout my project and I have particularly bookmarked the "Twenty Steps to Basic Decoration" chapter.

Rather than prescribing her own personal preferences, the author discusses and instructs us upon the various options available in every respect - whether it be acquiring a house, choosing decor, decorating, etc. Collectors' Houses, Shops and Children's doll houses are all covered.

Jean Nisbett assumes that you are a complete novice and guides you to create a dolls house to treasure.
