This book is intended for those modellers, the individualists, who want to go out and sketch or photograph their own buildings, and yet are not quite sure which would be the best way to start building them.
G. Iliffe Stokes opens his classic book with a few classic words.
After two years of searching I finally found a copy of G. Iliffe Stokes' Buildings in Miniature - $20 from an online bookseller here in Ontario. It's more like an extra thick pamphlet than a paperback book, but it's beautifully designed and put together. I think it was published in 1958. About 1/3 of it is photos and charming line drawings. The work is excellent. I'm looking forward to reading it.
