    (Four and a half stars). Straight off, I don't really like the style of faces in this book at all, and there is really only one style. Beautifully executed, of course. It's disappointing that there was absolutely zero variation in style: they are all exaggerated semi-realistic Art Cloth Doll Style (TM). Look at the cover and you can see exactly what I mean. On the other hand, the discussion of materials and techniques is excellent and inspiring, and there are complete doll projects. Like all of t (Four and a half stars).

Like all of this author's books, one of the best parts is seeing what other doll artists have done with her patterns to kickstart creativity.
