A fantastic opportunity to get up close with one of the world’s best collections of dollhouses

This beautifully illustrated revised edition celebrates some of the best-loved dollhouses from the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Dolls’ Houses presents specially commissioned photography detailing the astonishing skill and craftsmanship required to create these homes in miniature scale. The book invites you to take a close-up look at the most interesting and historically significant examples of this absorbing craft, from the exquisite Nuremberg House of 1673 to the brightly colored 21st-century Kaleidoscope House. From lavish country mansions to cozy suburban villas, it explores the houses’ fascinating roles as both domestic teaching aids and records of contemporary lifestyle, providing unique insights into the world of their owners.
