Miniature Book Society Traveling Exhibit and Lecture by Todd
This hands-on discussion and presentation of miniature books will be
hosted by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society. Come meet local
collector, Todd Sommerfeld as he talks about miniature books. He will
discuss the history of miniature books from the earliest times to the
present, as well as share stories about books and book collecting over
the last thirty years. What is a miniature book? In the United States, a
miniature book is usually considered to be one which is no more than
three inches in height, width, or thickness. Some aficionados collect
slightly larger books while others specialize in even smaller sizes.
Outside the United States, books up to four inches are often considered
miniature. Also on display will be a selection of miniature books from
the John F. Puskas Miniature Book Collection.
