Dolls' Houses have fascinated children and adults for centuries. This delightful book, revised and now presented in hardback with a new foreword by artist Rachel Whiteread, explores the astonishing skill and craftsmanship required to create these miniature homes. A brief history of dolls' houses is followed by a closer look at some of the most interesting and historically significant examples in the V&A's collection.


From country mansions to cosy suburban villas, from a Japanese house to Rachel Whiteread's celebrated installation Place (Village) it uncovers the fascinating role that dolls' houses have played in the lives of their owners and as records of contemporary lifestyle. The book ends with a full catalogue of the dolls' houses held by the museum.
