Published in tandem with an exhibition at The Grolier Club, New York, being held from May 15 to July 28, 2007, this large volume features miniature books produced throughout history. Bromer (bookdealer/publisher of miniature and related books) and Edison (editor, Miniature Book News) trace the history of this genre from medieval illuminated manuscripts to quirky modern versions including tiny nested books and propaganda tracts. Notable features include an introduction by the late Stanley Marcus (of Nieman-Marcus) who published and collected mini-books, some 260 full-color illustrations, resources for finding these tiny treasures, and gilt-edged pages.
