One of the dangers of collecting is the prospect of the collections taking over the entire house. One way to avoid this is to collect in miniature, thereby containing everything to a more manageable scale.
In my case, this collection has gradually evolved into a miniature dollhouse library. The roombox, with a sliding plexiglass front to keep out dust and curious cats, has been finished on the inside with wallpaper, a hardwood floor, and crown molding.
The most important element of the library roombox is of course the bookshelf, filled with dollhouse-scale books. Most of the books contain readable text. My collection includes books from Mosaic Press, Bo Press Miniature Books, Dateman Miniature Books, Robert Massmann, and others.
