Description

A delightful and illuminating exploration of the human instinct to make things small, from the bestselling author of Just My Type and On the Map. Simon Garfield reveals the secret histories of tiny Eiffel Towers, the truth about the flea circus, a doll’s house made for a Queen, eerie tableaux of crime scenes, miniature food, model villages and railways, and more. Bringing together history, psychology, art and obsession, Garfield explores what fuels the strong appeal of miniature objects, and how controlling a tiny scaled-down world can give new perspectives, restore our sense of order in uncertain times, and, in unexpected ways, let us see our world in a whole new light. In Miniature takes a big look at small things and teaches us that there is greatness in the diminutive. “Digressive, gossipy, thoughtful and thoroughly entertaining” SUNDAY TIMES
