Review:

"At long last, there is a solution for all of you who have been bemoaning the shoes offered by manufacturers. In fact, given the beauty of its presentation and the wealth of information provided, The Art of Making Beautiful Fashion Doll Shoes" may become the definitive book on the subject." -- Fashion Doll Scene, October 1999

"The book is of coffee table quality and stands to be a must-have for any collector who makes his or her own doll costumes and accessories. Tim's shoe creations feature extraordinary details in diminutive scale. Using leather, satin, suedes, and a unique system, Tim is able to make shoes for every size and shape of doll. By learning his system, collectors can make shoes for their own dolls, whether fashion, baby, antique or contemporary". -- Doll Reader, January 2000
