“A World in the Palm of Your Hand: The Art of Miniature Books”



“A World in the Palm of Your Hand: The Art of Miniature Books”

Imagine a handful of books with beautiful bindings and engaging, often unique, content.  Miniature books, typically no larger than three inches, are seldom encountered outside of the collections of certain libraries and individuals.  Now you have an opportunity to experience these treasures in an exhibit created by the Miniature Book Society, an international organization devoted to the appreciation of miniature books. All events are free and open to the public.  For more information, email libfriends@wesleyan.edu.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Wesleyan Library.
