I did not publish any pictures from the following books because of copyright infringements. To see pictures go onto the Web site or Pinterest and go to their name. Pictures will come up of their creations.
In the last blog I told you about a site called Blurb. You can create and publish your own book.
Here are the websites and the books published by Cynthia Lauren Speren. She is a Cottage style and food miniaturist. www.cynthiascottagedesign.blogspot.com There you will see 3 books she has available.
Mini-ologies a new seasonal miniature magazine
Cottage Style Kitchens by Cynthia Lauren Speren
Cooking and Baking in Miniature Cottage Kitchens by Cynthia Lauren Speren
These books are just beautiful with wonderful colorful pictures and recipes on how to make items in the mini kitchen. Click on detail of each book and it will take you to the Blurb Website. Very easy order by credit card or pay pal. You can preview a few pages of each book on the website. If you like cottage country and shabby chic these are for you.
The next website to go to and see her book is wwwpetitplat.fr Stephanie Kilgast is a miniature food artist and her book is called Party Food. Each is detailed on how to make. You will look at this over and over. It is also easy to order and comes in just about a week.
The next book on Blurb is by Kim Saulter a food artist. Google her name and her blog will come up. Her book is called Miniature Kitchen Loves and Sweet Inspirations in 1/12 scale. This one has a book or online book available. I chose the online book which is lovely, but I still prefer the paper style hold in your hand book.
After looking at the Blurb site and seeing these lovely ladies books, I am also inspired to work on a book of How-To's. It will take a while because good pictures and interesting settings also need to be made. I think this new tecnology will be a great boon to Miniaturists. Inspiration can come in many ways. All of the above books and magazines have really created a desire in me to do something more.
Hope you enjoy researching these sites and looking at these lovely designs by Talented Miniaturist's.
