The book is full of all sorts of ideas, though it was small on "found" objects for furniture making. As I am new to miniatures, this book had all sorts of ideas for the novice to the master craftsman. Of course the book hawks back to the 70's and the color of pictures reflect this...the ideas were still innovative and creative. Great detail to every aspect of the dollhouse, including lighting, room arrangements and period pieces. I look forward to making the beautiful furniture featured in this "old school" book.
