After spending some time drooling over Edwardian and Victorian dollhouses at the VA Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green for the 4th time yesterday afternoon, I decided to go check out Charles Matton's Enclosures miniature room installations and mirror mazes about which I reported earlier.

And what can I tell you, dear reader? Definitely the show of the year. If you're in London between now and October 8, DO NOT miss it. All details here.

It was a bit of a challenge taking these pictures through glass covered in fingerprints so please understand that these works look way better in person. And to give you an idea of dimensions: None of these cases is larger than 1m³ and you can see a typical layout in the last picture.
