Format: Paperback
For those of us who admire, collect, make and renovate 1920s and 20s-inspired art dolls, Susanna Oroyan has written a thoughtful volume focusing on boudoir dolls from the Art Deco period. Although the topic is covered better visually in another of my favorites, "The Magic and Romance of Art Dolls" by Stephanie Farago, the strength of this book is in Oroyan's excellent research, writing and wonderful storytelling ability. Her fresh and fun-loving writing style shines in this book (the illustrative drawings also are quite good.)
Unlike her other fine books, which focus more directly on the art, design and mechanics of doll-making, this book is a loving tribute to a period, aesthetic and style of doll that she very much values, appreciates and knows well. And for that we can be thankful, as Oroyan has contributed so largely to the doll-making world, with her vision, her instruction, and her art.
Highly recommended as another fine book to add to the resource library of "students of the doll."

A beautiful book to just look at and enjoy. A few techniques are shown for completing and dressing the doll but mostly a book to drool over other artist's creations. I think I have all of Susanna Oroyan's books and love them all. Some of her other books go into alot more detail than this one but I am very glad to have this as well as the others.

there is no other book that gives so much information on bed dolls called boudoir dolls. This is like a "bible" for doll collectors. You do not need another book if you have this one.

I'm a doll maker. Susanna Oroyan's books inspired me to start making dolls. So, naturally I am interested in all her books. I find it fascinating to see dolls from all eras. This book is part of my reference library.
