Publisher Comments:

Contemporary and unique, these handmade creations range from representational to abstract, from skillful realism to provocative surrealism—and theyre 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 Verhelsts porcelain designs seem to have sprung straight from a medieval painting. Chris Chomicks 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.

Elizabeth Grimsrud, November 11, 2009 (view all comments by Elizabeth Grimsrud)
Whenever I need a little creative boost, I flip through the pages of this book. It shows an amazing range of interpretations of the human form in many mediums and exceptional craftsmanship. Being a doll maker myself, I'm inspired by the images of rustic, stylized figures. Some of the dolls are quite life-like, appearing as if from a fantasy animation set. I doubt if I'll ever tire of looking at the pictures in this book.
