15 December 2017

Watch how the house of The Miniaturist (including a miniature Peebo the parrot) came to life for the book's cover in this video. The TV adaptation of Jessie Burton's novel airs on BBC One on Boxing Day 2017. 

The design for the book cover of The Miniaturist,  features a specially-made model of the house at the heart of the novel. Thanks to Andersen M Studio filming their work, you can now watch this little house being built, in all its infinitesimal detail...
