In this comprehensive manual Jessica Ridley tells you everything you'll need to know to create a truly striking and creative doll's house in a wide variety of styles from American Country to Artist's Studio, Etruscan to Edwardian, Scottish Baronial to Scandinavian. Working on four façades and nineteen different rooms, she explains how to hand-paint eighteenth-century wallpaper, marbleize floors, wood-grain tables, gild picture-frames, upholster furniture, make miniature food, and much, much more. The step-by step instructions are clearly illustrated with more than 350 close-up full-colour photographs. Along the way, you will learn how to research authentic decor and how to stretch your powers of ingenuity by making the most of what is available: how, for example, to make chairs from pieces of champagne wire, a thatch roof from mop head, or medieval weapons from cocktail sticks. Both a practical manual and a beautifully illustrated sourcebook, The Decorated Doll's House offers ideas, instruction, and inspiration in a delightful introduction to the enchanting world of miniature interiors.

Transcultural Joyce

Author: Karen Lawrence

In Transcultural Joyce, a team of leading international scholars assess the afterlife of James Joyce and his writings within a multinational context. How does Joyce haunt the works of later writers in diverse literary traditions? How well does he translate from one culture and language to another? This book consider Joyce's reincarnations in texts from Latin America, Europe, and South Asia. Transcultural Joyce provides a fresh theoretical examination of conventional notions such as 'influence' and 'translation' and asks how Joyce is imported across particular cultural boundaries. As a canonical modernist and colonial subject, Joyce inhabits a borderline position that complicates his reception and revision by later writers. This book accounts for his cultural place as specifically Irish and more postcolonial than previous studies have acknowledged. Scholars and translators of Joyce also consider the formidable task of translating his work for a global audience.
