Miniature Books

The wonder of miniature books

A story in The Atlantic online by Rebecca J. Rosen today made me appreciate our small but lovely miniature book collection even more.

Miniature Book Reception July 22, Online Exhibition now!

The current exhibition Many Littles Make a Much: A Selection of Miniature Books from Drexel University's Special Collection has been on display for a couple of weeks now, and has received a fair share of admiration.

A reception for the show is planned for July 22.  Watch this space for more details.

In addition to the physical exhibition, an online version is now available.

On your next trip to the Lower-Level

Next time you swing by the Lower Level of Hagerty Library, be sure to check out the Drexel University's Special Collection exhibition: "Many Littles Make a Much" -- a collection of miniature books.

The exhibition cases have recently been moved to make room for the periodicals, now also located in the Lower Level. The exhibition is now along the north wall.

Be sure to pass by often to see new exhibitions as they happen!

For more information about the Special Collection, contact the University Archives.

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.
