I Collect Miniature Books

comparing-book-sizesI collect miniature books. The first time I saw a miniature book (defined as being under 3 inches in its largest dimension), I was enchanted by its size and also by the possibilities it offered from a design perspective. My desire to own…many… was immediate. My desire to design my own was nearly as instantaneous. From the time of seeing my first miniature book until the time I published my first one was about 2 months. It proved to be a tiny portal to a wide area of interest and enjoyment. Collecting Miniature Books.

    This is a whole new concept to me. So interesting! It identifies for me a miniature book we have titled Daily Food. The inscription on the fly leaf says, Presented by PleasantRidge Presbyterian Church Christmas 1885.
    I am guessing it was given to my husbands grandmother who grew up in that church in Cincinnati.
