Susanna Oroyan Books

I just got Designing the Doll by Susanna Oroyan.

It has many nice illustrations of Art Dolls and discusses many different ways to make dolls.

It even mentions Martha Armstrong-Hand, and shows one of her stringing designs for a BJD.

Otherwise, there is not much information about BJDs in the book. I am glad to have it on my doll making reference bookshelf.

Designing The Doll: From Concept To Construction.

I already had a copy of Anatomy of a Doll by Susanna Oroyan. Designing the Doll expands on concepts presented in Anatomy of a Doll.
