A room by room tour of the world’s most spectacular dollhouses.


From early art cabinets and intricate “baby” houses to the highly-detailed dollhouses of today, this lavishly illustrated book examines the history of dollhouses and their shifting role in society.


An unprecedented survey of the craft, Dollhouses showcases a wide range of designs, from the Tudor, Stuart, and Victorian periods to the modernist 1950s and contemporary designs. Featuring never-before-published dollhouses from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s world-class collection, the book takes readers on a visual tour of the interiors, with close-up details showing the masterful craftsmanship required to create these exquisite miniature works of art.
