Overview

Patti Culea, elinor peace bailey, and Barbara Willis are three of the leading doll artists and teachers in the country. They are also friends. Each of these artists has her own distinct approach to the design and development of a cloth figure.

A gallery of additional creations by each artist, along with commentary on each work completes the collection. This is a must-have book for any aspiring or experienced doll making.

Although this book isn't out yet it is bound to be wonderful when it is released. I own all but 1 (I think it may be out-of-print) of Patti Culea's books and I charish each and every one. The dolls just have an aura about them that makes you look at them over-and-over and they inspire you to WANT to create one of your own. Mrs. Culea is a warm, approachable person and cares about her craft. She is on Facebook and will chat with you when she is able. I WILL be purchasing this book the moment it is released! If you want to learn to make dolls, the book "Cloth Doll Making" listed in my "Recommend" section is a good one to start with. I hope to, one day, go on the "Doll Making Cruise" with Mrs. Culea...I'm sure it would be a blast!
