                I hadn’t heard of Ferrer-Dalmau before reading this book, though undoubtedly I saw one of his paintings somewhere online.  I requested this book from Netgalley because my father collects miniature soldiers, and I collect model horses.

                It’s stunning piece of work.  If you know anyone who is interested miniatures, you should consider getting them this book.

                While the book does contain introductory essays that not only about Ferrer-Dalmau but also about the miniatures and a bit about military history, the bulk of the book is the art.  Miniaturists created work that references, or is a direct recreation of, a painting or part of a painting. 

                This book makes me wish I had been able to see the exhibit.
