For miniaturists wanting to re-create Upstairs, Downstairsin dollhouse form, this book of projects for a three-story (plus basement) Victorian townhouse is just the thing. Berridge (Making Miniatures: Projects for the 1:12 Scale Dolls' House) emphasizes servants' roles in the Victorian era. She leads readers from the maid's bedroom in the early morning and works her way through the day to the master bedroom in the evening, offering 70 projects for furniture, clothes, and accessories for every room. (The book assumes that the house is already partially furnished.) An excellent selection for public libraries needing more material on dollhouses and miniatures.
