Books, books, books!

I started making some 1/6 scale miniatures a few years ago when I was looking for things to add to my doll dress photos to help set the scene. One of the first things I started making was books. I had bookshelves to fill and it was hard to find US suppliers with beautiful book covers in 1/6 scale. So with some desktop publishing software and pictures of old books, I set about creating my own. Once I offered them for sale in my Etsy shop, they quickly became best sellers (most popular color is pink – can’t imagine why). I don’t even want to know how many thousands of books I’ve made over the years. Lately, I’ve been getting bored making the same old books over and over, so I decided to add some new titles to my selections. While I have added a few more Barbie books to that listing recently, Mattel only published so many Barbie novels. So I decided to expand my vintage book listing. Here’s a glimpse at my expanded selection of books.

  1. How did you manage to get the titles on those teeny tiny spines?! That is fantastic. Makes them look more realistic. Love that they are classics too.
