Tiny Regency furniture

I can’t imagine anything more fun than the you-got-your-chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter combination of Jane Austen and dollhouse miniatures, two of my favorite things.

So picture my glee when I ran across this account of the creation of an itty bitty room-in-a-box based on Austen’s sitting room at Chawton cottage. (More details can be found here.)

It’s especially cool that this tiny scene is the work of a Janeite from Greece – check out the Greek translations of Austen novels visible in some of the shots – and a man, to boot. Austenmania is indeed a universal phenomenon.
