Introducing #minibookMonday

Welcome to #minibookMonday! The Miniature Book Society defines miniature books as “no more than three inches in height, width, or thickness.” Special Collections & Archives has a number of books that fit this profile as well as many that are slightly larger but still diminutive. Every other Monday we will be bringing you a new baby book from our collection.

This week’s miniature is Dig, An Excavation at Marcham by Claire Bolton. Watch the video above to see what the book looks like when opened. At exactly 3 inches it is a perfect representation of a miniature book. Dig is part of SC&A’s Rosalee McReynolds Collection and is No. 35 of “A limited and numbered edition of forty numbered copies designed, printed and bound by Claire Bolton with lots of help from Nicole Passerotti.”

Join us again on September 28 for another round of #minibookMonday!

Found in the Archives is a recurring series of crazy cool stuff found in the Monroe Library’s Special Collections & Archives.
