New Exhibition: Many Littles Make a Much

“Many Littles Make a Much: A Selection of Miniature Books from Drexel University’s Special Collection" is Drexel University Archives' newest exhibition. All the books in this show measure three or fewer inches in any dimension, and represent a cross-section of the world of miniature books. The show spans books from practical mini-dictionaries on one end, to a conceptually-driven sculptural mini-book.

In an effort to let the Drexel community and the public at large learn more about the treasures in the Drexel University Special Collections, we're gearing up for a number of exhibitions.

The exhibitions will feature materials that the staff think will be of wide appeal, and will be in the cases along the south wall in the lower level of Hagerty Library.

The first exhibition is being installed today - watch this space tomorrow for an announcement.
