The Figure In Clay
This is a book of inspiration and technique, but mostly inspiration. While it isn't specifically about dolls, per se, there are enough provocative images of clay figure sculpture in this book to fuel the imagination. Some of the best Artist BJDs that I've seen have been more sculptural than doll-like, and they certainly don't fit in the Asian BJD aesthetic, which is just one of many. This book is still available, and you can probably find it in your local library.
