Presented in covetable hardback with a foreword from Rachel Whiteread, this beautifully illustrated revised edition celebrates some of the best-loved dolls' houses from one of the world’s greatest collections - the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Opening with a brief history of the dolls’ house, the book then invites you to take a close-up look at the most interesting and historically significant examples of this absorbing craft. Specially commissioned photography reveals the astonishing skill and craftsmanship require to create models from the exquisite Nuremburg House of 1673, to the brightly coloured twenty- first century Kaleidoscope House. From lavish country mansions to cosy suburban villas, it explores the houses' fascinating roles as both domestic teaching aids and records of contemporary lifestyle, and gives unique insights into the world of their owners.
