Museum of the Shenandoah Valley
R. Lee Taylor Miniatures: The Valley's Tiny Treasures
The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley interprets the art, history, and culture of the great valley for which it is named. This regional museum complex in Winchester, Virginia, includes a historic house dating to the eighteenth century, six acres of spectacular gardens, and a museum building designed by internationally recognized architect Michael Graves with permanent exhibits by 1717 Design. For more information, visit www.shenandoahmuseum.org.
After completing the museum exhibitions, 1717 was asked to design a 132‐page, perfect bound publication, written by Marge Lee. This tiny coffee table book features the Museum's phenomenal collection of miniature houses which includes the work of seventy artists, many who are giants in the diminutive world of miniatures. These small houses and rooms are furnished in exact detail, but on a scale of just one inch to one foot. This elegant 5” x 5” book, printed on coated paper, features almost 100 beautiful full‐color reproductions of the miniature houses, their interiors, and furnishings. Photography is by Ron Blunt, Erik Kvalsvik, and Greg Staley. The book retails exclusively in the Museum Gift Shop.
