This beautiful book showcases an amazing collection of hand-made dolls by the members of NIADA (The National Institute of American Doll Artists) which now includes doll-makers worldwide.
The Gallery of dolls is divided into chapters based on the type of construction, e.g. Air Dry Clay; Fiber; Paper; Wood; Mixed Media; etc.
As the editor writes, “The purpose of this book is to invite people to see dolls from the artists’ perspective…it serves not merely as a showcase for the richness of the work of NIADA’s members, but – like any fine work of art – delights, moves, and inspires all those who encounter it.”
