From Wikipedia: 'The phrase man bites dog describes a phenomenon in journalism in which an unusual, infrequent event is more likely to be reported as news than an ordinary, everyday occurrence (such as Dog bites man).'
The Dutch contrary current affairs show 'Man bijt hond' interviewed some miniaturists a few weeks ago. While going through their files I found several clips you might like to see.
This first clip is from 2003 and shows Annelies de Kort, a miniaturist who does the most fabulous miniature knitting, embroidery, lace etc. Take your time to watch the clip and visit her website, and discover all of the treasures Annelies has made over the years.
Eight years later, in February 2011, Annelies de Kort is interviewed again:
This next clip shows Bram who has been working on his miniature house for 11 years. The building has running water, heating, airco, a working elevator and many other fun details.
The last clip I would like to show you is about Wil and Hetty Fromme. The couple is interviewed about their vast collection of design furniture, after a devastating fire destroyed many priceless pieces from the collection of the Delft University of Technology in 2008. On Wil and Hetty Fromme's website you can see their collection in more detail and download some plans for free.
