    Contemporary and unique, these handmade creations range from representational to abstract, from skillful realism to provocative surrealism?and they’re made from every conceivable material, including beads, gourds, and polymer clay. Juror Akira Blount, a pioneer in the ?art doll” movement, incorporates vines, twigs, and carved wood in her fabric dolls; with their expressionless faces and closed eyes, they appear absorbed by inner worlds. Dutch artist Marlaine Verhelst’s porcelain designs seem to have sprung straight from a medieval painting. Chris Chomick’s strange and slightly scary figures feature amazing detail and elaborate costumes. Dollmakers, crafters, collectors, and anyone who loves beautiful objects will love the amazing diversity showcased here.

    • A feast for the eyes

      Not only did I love pouring through this book, my six year old son loved looking at the fantastic dolls with me. This book is full of creative geniuses who make all sorts of dolls. My only critique is that artist Chris Malone's work should have been featured with all the other great pieces. This book is great eye candy and a must for inspiring doll artists to take their work to the next level.
