Description

The variety of subjects that appear betwene thse tiny covers is as diverse as that found in full-size books. Why would the world's literature, art, and history be published in miniature? Portability and accessibility are certainly two answers, but there are also compelling reasons for printers, artists, and binders to create intriguing volumes in a scaled-down size, and for collectors to possess these intricate and aesthetically pleasing objects. This is the first lavishly illustrated, authortiatve volume on the delightful subject of books no taller than three inches.
