Magnificent Miniatures : Inspiration and Technique for Grand Houses on a Small Scale Hardback
This beautifully illustrated book features the breadth and range of Mulvany and Rogers' architectural miniatures - commissioned by museums and private collectors - covering many historic periods and countries, and including projects as diverse as Versailles and an American colonial house.
Mulvany and Rogers use techniques and materials, both modern and traditional, to re-create in stunning and minute detail the appearance and atmosphere of buildings, their interiors, room decor and objets d'art. Practical projects for the reader include creating marble floors and decorative details, constructing chimneys and domes, and step-by-step instructions for making a parquet floor.
Clear step-by-step instructions describe the materials needed and the techniques involved.
