Steampunk.
If you have not heard of Steampunk then the best way to familiarise yourself with the movement is to go to Google / Images and type in "Steampunk".  But as the quote in the book says - "It is Victorian / Industrial but with more whimsy and fewer orphans!"

This tiny book has some special features - the cover is a metallic gold-coloured leather with small watch parts impressed into the leather, creating the Steampunk design.

The contents are images of Steampunk creations and the opposite page gives the credits for the original designers of the pieces.  This is definately a talking piece for your dollshouse.

The cost is $30 US and postage is $6 US. 
Payment by PayPal.
