The NIADA Foundation Book Project:
NIADA Art Dolls: Rich Traditions, New Ideas

This captivating book celebrates the work of world-class artists who have chosen dolls and handmade figures as their medium of expression. The National Institute of American Doll Artists (NIADA), an organization committed to the highest artistic standards for its peer-elected members, presents the work of 160 artists who have been awarded membership since the group’s founding in 1963. A stunning array of more than 630 pieces portrays the changing scenery of the art-doll world, from traditional realistic styles to the cutting-edge figurative art of today. These extraordinary, inspiring images are a dynamic testimony for the doll as art.

As Krystyna Poray Goddu writes in her foreword, this volume “serves not merely as a showcase for the richness of the work of NIADA’s members, but—like any fine work of art—delights, moves, and inspires all those who encounter it.”

Shelley Thornton, editor and book project director, is a lifelong artist of varied endeavors and now creates soft-sculpted cloth dolls, juxtaposing beautiful textiles with her simple but elegant and serene design sensibility. She was elected to NIADA in 1995.

Chris Chomick, art director and designer, has a background in graphic design and print production. With her husband, Peter Meder, she creates avant-garde figurative art, specializing in automata. She was elected to NIADA in 1997.
