From the thatched roof of an English cottage to a timbered, 16th century merchant's home, certain characteristics distinguish a building's style. Learn how to create an authentic period model -- Tudor, Stuart, Georgian, or Victorian. Floor plans, watercolor renderings, and color photographs enhance advice on adapting design and copying construction materials for use in a dolls' house. Build your own Cotswold country home, London townhouse, Italianate villa, and many more exact-replica dollhouses.

Not a book of dollhouse projects, this is an illustrated reference of English architectural styles and elements for use by dollhouse makers. Additionally, it will be useful to crafters of miniature houses in other media. Color photographs, floor plans, construction diagrams, and lovely color renderings fill the chapters containing period styles, roof and wall materials, and drainage and sanitation arrangements. There is a brief chapter on dollhouse construction, but the book will chiefly interest needleworkers, artists, and the modelers of miniatures, who will find this a valuable source of design.
