Dolls' Houses Past & Present

A website and ezine about dolls' houses: antique, vintage and modern. Plus furniture and accessories.

Giveaway Competition for Members

Member Zoe H. is kindly offering these two books as prizes for the giveaway competition this time. Jill Friendship's article mentioned a Japanese dolls house in Faith Eaton's book The Ultimate Dolls' House Book, and as you can see from the cover, many other wonderful dolls houses are covered, with excellent photos. The second book, The Doll's House by Rumer Godden, is a well-loved children's story for many of us. This edition has pictures by the celebrated illustrator and writer Tasha Tudor, who herself had a dolls house collection. These books are not new, but both look to have been hardly used at all. The edges of The Ultimate Dolls' House Book's dust jacket are a little bit scuffed but the book itself is in excellent condition. If you don't already own these books, now is your chance to win one! Zoe is happy to post to wherever the winners live, so members around the world, as always, you are welcome to enter!

If you would like to enter the competition and have a chance to win one of these books, just look through the pages of this issue of the magazine, and find which article each of these images appears in. Each one is a small part or detail from a photo in one of the articles. When you have found all of them, send me the page number or the name of the article for each one (eg Photo A is on page ..., or Photo B is in the article ....).

Please also tell me which book you would like to win.

             A                                            B

           C                                                 D

                          E                                                 F


This competition is only open to registered members of this website, Dolls Houses Past and Present.

Submission Guidelines

We're always happy to receive submissions at any time for our quarterly ezine (currently published in March, June, September and December each year).


Ideally, your submission will be in Word format, emailed to Rebecca at greenreb41 at hotmail dot com as an attachment. If you do not have access to Word we're also happy to receive your article in the body of your email.


If your submission includes photos the placement of the photos should be indicated within the submission like this:

This is an article about dolls houses or miniatures and here is a lovely photo to illustrate my point:

<Photo 1: Name of your photo>

Caption, if you're using one.

And then the article continues like this...

Photos should be about 500kb, if possible. Most photo editing software has an option to resize photos, but I can do this if you're not sure how to. I prefer to receive photos at higher resolution and larger size, than too small - it is easier to reduce the size than enlarge it, and it enables me to zoom in to details. Please send your photos as attachments, not embedded in your submission. Please ensure the names of your photos match the names you have provided in the body of your submission.
