Miniature books tell a big story. Usually defined as books less than three inches tall, miniatures have been produced since antiquity. Ranging in subject matter from children’s literature to propaganda, these tiny tomes were originally created to be easily carried or concealed. Miniature books are still a popular medium today and can be highly collectable for both their literary content and artistic creation. Morgan Davis Gieringer, head of archives and rare books at the University of North Texas Libraries, will discuss the school’s collection of over 4,000 miniature books and the reasons behind collecting these small treasures.
