Hunt Library, Fourth Floor
March 3 – May 31, 2017

The Miniature Book Society defines a miniature book in the following way: no dimension may be greater than three inches (7.2 mm). If the book has a container, that container may exceed three inches. It must be in an edition of at least three copies. 

On display through May 31, this exhibit offers a rare opportunity to view these tiny creations up close. Including titles such as “Red Riding Hood,” “The Raven,” and “Life and Work of Beatrix Potter,” viewers will see many familiar works of literature among these shrunken treasures. The Libraries’ miniature books were donated by Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt and Mary Louise Meder.
