Описание: This wonderful new resource, featuring more than 525 color photos of over 1,500 dolls, traces the history of commercially made miniature and dollhouse-size dolls families, household help, community professionals, nationally costumed, and storybook characters. Dolls made of wood, cloth, china, parian, all-bisque, painted-over bisque, paper, cardboard, plastic, rubber, composition, celluloid, and vinyl are pictured, many with dollhouse miniatures appropriate to their period. Special emphasis is given to the dolls and doll makers of the Great Depression, WWII, and the Baby Boomer Era, including many examples from Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, Scandinavia, the United States, and elsewhere around the world. New research, some based on interviews with relatives and friends of mid-20th century artisans, is featured throughout. The place of these dolls in their historical context is explored to explain how their fashions, hairstyles, and subjects evolved. A richly detailed bibliography guides collectors to source material, both traditionally published and on-line. Current estimates of value accompany the photo captions to reflect current market pricing. The wide range of dolls, manufacturers, and dollmakers discussed and pictured make this an indispensable identification guide for all who cherish miniature dolls.
Описание: This book features the original sample collection and handwritten drafts of the talented, early 20th century weaver, Bertha Gray Hayes of Providence, Rhode Island. She designed and wove miniature overshot patterns for four-harness looms that are creative and unique. The book contains color reproductions of 72 original sample cards and 20 recently discovered patterns, many shown with a picture of the woven sample, and each with computer-generated drawdowns and drafting patterns. Her designs are unique in their asymmetry and personal in her use of name drafting to create the designs. Bertha Hayes attended the first nine National Conferences of American Handweavers (1938-1946). She learned to weave by herself through the Shuttle-Craft home course and was a charter member of the Shuttle-Craft Guild, and authored articles on weaving.
Описание: "Micromonumentality" is the first title in a series, Micro-Africa, that highlights the artistic and cultural value of miniature objects created in Africa. The first volume introduces the concept behind the series, offering a broad overview of objects and materials created and used by a large number of different African ethnic groups. With superb full-page photographs and close-ups of individual details, "Micromonumentality" extols the wealth of expression found in talismans, weights, boxes, containers, fetishes, jewels, and other objects made from wood, ivory, bone, bronze, iron, aluminum, and stone. None of these exceed 6 inches in height or length, and though they are indeed microscopic, they are as expressive as much larger works, and monumental in their own right. Here, approximately 150 objects from a unique collection of 20,000 pieces represent the quintessence of African thought, religiosity, and prodigious formal inventiveness."

Описание: "One of the most popular exhibits at the Smithsonian Institute is a dollhouse. Sitting on the museum`s third floor is the five-story home donated to the museum by Faith Bradford, a Washington, D.C., librarian, who spent more than a half-century accumulating and constructing the 1,354 miniatures that fill its 23 intricately detailed rooms. When Bradford donated them to the museum in 1951, she wrote a lengthy manuscript describing the lives of its residents: Mr. and Mrs. Peter Doll and their ten children, two visiting grandparents, twenty pets, and household staff. Bradford cataloged the Dolls` tastes, habits, and preferences in neatly typed household inventories, which she then bound, along with photographs and fabric samples, in a scrapbook" --
