    I just got into miniatures and this book has given me so many ideas! The pictures are amazing to just look at and the amount of information in the book is great! I poured over it when I got it and now I'm going back to get more details to keep honing my miniaturists skill!

    Great for the seasoned builder and great points on making items! This book has plans for houses in 1 inch scale which is always a plus for me. Very helpful.

    I bought this book for the doll pattern more so than the doll house patterns. It definately met my expectations and I am excited to get started.

    Now, this is a book worth reading, buying, and keeping on the shelf ready to make use of or just to transport to another world. Not as great as a couple of other books out there for making furniture and accessories, but just as useful. This book has a lot of ideas, just not as many as some older books have. The book is all in color; a definite plus to show you what the items, rooms and houses look like and covers scales of 1/12 and the smaller child's dollhouse scale of 1/16. First published in 1982, this new and extended edition is copyrighted 1993. This book begins with the planning stages of the dollhouse, building the house, and goes into decorating and lighting, fixtures and fitting, furniture, accessories and more. It also shows how to build a dollhouse out of a cupboard, to make an antique shop, the Victorian Town House, the Tudor Cottage and more. There is even a chapter on making dolls for the dollhouse and renovation of dollhouses.

I found 'The New Dolls' House Do-It-Yourself Book' an absolute treasure trove of new and exciting ideas. Thank you, Venus and Martin Dodge, for sharing your passion with others.
