PDMAG Coffee Table BOOK

Professional Doll makers guild is publishing an Art Doll book in 2016. The hard work is done, they book is headed to the publisher for last looks. Because a release is required to publish intellectual property any members who did not respond to our correspondence will not be the book. Apprentice members will not have their work featured in the book but will have their names included. We hope to have the books in hand in time for the IDTS show in June.
