The latest edition to my bookshelf, building dioramas has always been a prominent feature of the toy soldier collecting scene in Germany and this book illustrates 100 of the best from museum exhibits to examples in private collections. 30mm flat tin figures predominate, as you might expect, but there are plenty that include modern solid figures from 54mm down to 20mm.
The architectural and landscape features are often the most impressive elements in the displays but what they all have in common is that they are exquisitely executed. The dioramas are organised in chronological order of historical period depicted from prehistoric times to WW2.
The subject won't appeal to everyone but if your eye is pleased by pretty pictures of miniature figures then it probably will.
