Robert McKinley's Doll making - One Artist's Approach

So (in case you missed it) - the big news in Art Doll circles is that Bob McKinley's book Doll Making - One Artist's Approach is finally being made available again after many years out of print. Bill Nelson has the new edition available on his website here. This is exciting news for doll makers everywhere - Robert McKinley was a well known NIADA artist who seems to have been universally loved by all who knew him. His reputation as a generous and giving instructor lives on and how lucky that it is possible to get our hands on this new edition - the first editions sell in the $100 to $200 range.  Bill has the new edition available for $35 USD plus shipping. If I were you - I'd hop on over!

    Thank you for this information about this newly reprinted edition of Robert McKinley's book. He is (was) an amazing doll sculptor, probably the best!
    And thank you for coming to follow my blog.
