Promoting the history and fascination of miniature books, the
Miniature Book Society
has “created a traveling exhibit showcasing modern masterpieces as well as historic examples.” Miniature books are exactly what you think. It is a bounded book that the dimensions of either three or four inches. Every year the society adds new treasures, as well as restoring and preserving ones already in its collection. MBS began touring in 2010, and still continues to exhibit at libraries, universities and collectors. Beginning Monday, November 2
, the Frank Mt. Pleasant Library of Special Collections will be hosting the MBS exhibit case, which has a 360 degree view of some of its best specimens. Make sure to visit this unique collection on the first floor of the Leatherby Libraries and marvel at the minute text and illustrations.
