Mini Books

For a few more days (until May 18th, 2019) an exhibit in New York at the Grolier Club features the miniature book collection of Patricia J. Pistner. I visited the exhibit, “A Matter of Size: Miniature Texts & Bindings,” with Darren Scala (of D. Thomas Fine Miniatures) and we were both impressed by the range of sizes considered “miniature” when it came to books. Here are some of the highlights of the exhibit. Unfortunately there was no uniform scale on display with each book so it is difficult to show the actual size of each but you can get a sense of the scales by looking at the images of the display cases.
