The Lilliput Press, founded in Bristol by Tim Sheppard in the early 1980's, specialised in miniature books in roughly 1/12th scale -correct for displaying in a standard scale dolls house; but they are so much more than just items to embellish a child's toy; these are serious works of the book maker's art and well worth seeking out, although they are now difficult to find.
