What do we love more than books? Miniature books!

I saw this in the New York Times last week and I couldn’t help but share. There are 950 mini volumes on display right now at the Grolier Club in New York City. Most of the books are one to three inches high, and can be held in the palm of your hand! The collection belongs to Patricia J. Pistner, one of the country’s foremost collectors of miniature books.

This one above is inside a walnut. Really.

 

I highly recommend checking out the article for more photos of the exquisite tiny books in this collection!
