The Ultimate Dolls' House Book (Hardcover)  by Faith Eaton (Author)

Though the text and color photographs are squeezed to conserve space on the page, this exploration into both the contents and fa{‡}cades of more than 35 miniature homes yields an appreciation of the crafts involved--e.g., woodwork, furniture making, needlework, stonework, ceramics, and, in general, all the arts incorporated into real-life dwellings.

From Booklist
Even for those readers with grown children or those without offspring, Eaton's latest contribution to the literature documenting dolls' houses is a joy--and an education--to peruse. Though the text and color photographs are squeezed to conserve space on the page, this exploration into both the contents and fa{‡}cades of more than 35 miniature homes yields an appreciation of the crafts involved--e.g., woodwork, furniture making, needlework, stonework, ceramics, and, in general, all the arts incorporated into real-life dwellings. Eaton uses more illustrations than words; for each of the houses featured she includes provenance (when known), brief descriptions of exterior and interiors, and individual photographs of furniture, dolls, and decorative accessories. These miniatures prove that there is indeed great beauty in all things small. Barbara Jacobs
