WeekendMiniaturist Posted July 24, 2018 Share Posted July 24, 2018 The Miniaturist First edition (UK) with quotation from S. J. Watson Author Jessie Burton Cover artist Katie Tooke, Andersen M Studio Country United Kingdom Language English Genre Historical fiction Set in Amsterdam, 1680s Published 2014, Ecco (US), Picador (UK) ISBN 978-0-06-230681-4 "The Miniaturist is the 2014 debut novel of English actress and author Jessie Burton. Set in Amsterdam in 1686–87, the novel was inspired by Petronella Oortman's doll's house on display at the Rijksmuseum. It does not otherwise attempt to be a biographical novel." I haven't read the book, I am conflicted based upon reviews of friends who have read the book, if I want to read it... but the mini series may be fun. It is my understanding that the 3 Part mini series aired previously in the UK, and will be broadcasted in the US beginning on Sunday, September 9, 2018 on Masterpiece on PBS. A miniature dollhouse inspires author... and over 1 million copies for her debut as an author of sold books - that is impressive! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
