Small Scale Big World

Small Scale Big World

Price: 65

The dozens of artists and craftspeople featured in this volume create miniature representations of real-world scenes―everything from housewares, such as a thumb-sized rice cooker, to storefronts and cliffside dwellings suspended in test tubes, all the way up to entire multi-story buildings, with every detail preserved inside and out. Each of these exquisite works tells an intriguing story, encapsulating history, culture and memory, and elevating everyday items―the signage on the side of a garbage can, a rusted downspout―to objects worthy of artistic representation, prompting us through this striking shift of scale to perceive the world in whole new ways.
