In Tiny World Terrariums, Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow — co-owners of Brooklyn's famed Twig Terrariums — offer readers all the tools necessary to create lovely, thriving terrariums of their own, and to bring each tiny world to life using cleverly arranged dollhouse miniatures, plastic figurines, rocks, and found objects. The projects in this book range from charming ("Teensy World," p. 76) to hilarious ("Tales of the Trailer Park," pp. 100-101) to macabre ("Don't Fear the Reaper," pp. 98-99), but my personal favorite is the picturesque "Serengeti" (pp. 92-93), complete with a beach glass watering hole, petrified wood rock formations, and African wildlife (look closely, and you'll even spy a few monkeys swinging from the tree). Mixed with a few easily sourced materials, a steady hand, and a vivid sense of imagination, this book will have you "terraring" in no time.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terrariums are a vibrant, unique way to inject a little greenery into any home. In Tiny World Terrariums, authors Katy and Michelle of Brooklyns celebrated Twig Terrariums offer step-by-step instructions for building your own, from selecting glass containers to layering soil and filtration to adding moss, succulents, and other plants. To give each terrarium a whimsical, personal touch, Katy and Michelle demonstrate how to use tiny figurines and toys to create to-scale scenes, such as a couple at their wedding, a CSI crime scene, and Central Park in springtime. Photos of gorgeous finished terrariums and detailed instructions will empower anyone—whether green-thumbed or not—to create their own Lilliputian worlds.

Praise for Tiny World Terrariums:

"Terrariums have been popular with adults since Victorian times. But Katy Maslow and Michelle Inciarrano, authors of Tiny World Terrariums, make a case for younger enthusiasts too . . . Their enclosed gardens range from sophisticated to silly, with dinosaurs, unicorns and an array of other figurines telling enchanting stories in mossy tableaux. Their wonderful book provides detailed instructions to guide you through the process." —Chicago Tribune

“[The authors] provide all the information needed to create the five layers of a

terrarium . . . inspiration for readers who want to make their own mini world.” —Better Homes and Gardens Country Gardens (Spring 2013 issue)

"I've been reading my fair share of how-to books on [terrariums] but I have a brand new favorite. Hands down . . . The tips on plant selection, preparation, and planting are the best Ive seen (I learned a lot!)." —Babble.com

"The book provides all the necessary instructions to create successfully healthy terrariums . . . But illustrations are the real delight. They show all sorts of tiny world photos labeled with container types, plant names, and more so you can more easily create contained life exactly as you envision it.” —Wired.com

"If you love terrariums as much as we do, this is going to rock your world: Brooklyn-based Twig Terrariums will be selling a photographic collection of their finest miniature green gardens . . . with a step-by-step guide to creating tiny themed worlds that even the least green-thumbed person will be able to make and maintain.” —Inhabitat.com
