Reference Books

These are my favourite reference books.
Gray's Anatomy, by By Henry Gray F.R.S. I just love the illustrations. The Dolls Dressmaker by Venus A. Dodge, a fantastic way to understand shape and form. Anatomy of a Doll, Designing the Doll and Fantastic Figures all by Susanna Oroyan. These books in particular are brilliant reference books with designs and types of dolls from all over the world. It is like having a piece of all the creative people in your own home. and lastly but not least, Creative Cloth Doll Making by Patti Medaris Culea. I like this book because of the details of using colour for faces to give them depth. To see how other designers have used the same patterns and all their own ideas form. You can see the individuality in their designs come through.
