Albert Einstein proved to us that E=MC2. Marilyn Monroe convinced us that gentlemen prefer blondes and that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Elvis Presley showed us how to swivel our hips to old-time rock 'n' roll. Through science, pop culture and arts, all of them have become the objects of great attention and devotion by fans everywhere.

If you can do stocking stitch, you should invest in this book. Whilst some of the dolls are a bit hit-and-miss, some are remarkably genius. If I had the time I would knit all of my loved ones an Albert Einstein

I don't know who I would make these dolls for but this is the best knitting book I have seen in ages. Elvis is my favourite!

Xavier Jones-Barlow, WATERSTONE'S ABERDEEN UNION BR
Despite the fact that I don't knit, or indeed have any sort of craft inclined artistic urges, I found this book to be an absolute joy. The content is colourful and amusing; I would be lying if I stated that I was not tempted to pick up a couple of those long needles for myself (fear not, I am not allowed to wield such things). This minor work of genius was brought to my attention by the authors appearance on the 'Graham Norton Show', where we learn why there were no Spice Girls included (*giggles*). This would make a superb gift, or would spawn superb gifts, and if there are any budding knitters out there send your practise pieces to my branch where they will be gratefully recieved.
Genius. I can't understand why no one thought of this sooner! Knitting has recently taken over my life so the thought of mini Madonnas and David Bowies created with my own two hands delights me. A charming book which would make any knitter, wannabe or expert, chuckle.

This book is perfect for novice and expert knitters alike. Each doll comes with a mini history, step-by-step instructions and an amazing picture! I find it impossible not to get excited about these tiny creations! Once you have mastered the basics you can even adapt the patterns to make woollen versions of your nearest and dearest!For my personal favourite doll, icon and man check out the beautiful David Bowie on page 95!

Madonna, Mr T., Elvis, Che Guevara, and even Gandhi - with twenty other iconic figures to choose from. The patterns are fully illustrated in colour with mini-biographies and evocative quotes from the subjects.
