Did you know that the Gleeson Library has a collection of miniature books housed in the Donohue Rare Book Room? Have you ever read or handled a miniature book? Books are classified as miniature books when they are 10 cm. or smaller. Ones in the Rare Book Room range from under a half an inch to nearly four inches in height. The books in the collection represent a range of subjects, including literature, history, religion, bibliography, and book arts.
Please visit this pop-up exhibition of miniature books on Wednesday, December 9th, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Circulation Lobby of the Library. The selection of books has been thoughtfully curated by Luisa Maria Baj, a graduate student in the Museum Studies Program and Student Assistant in the Donohue Rare Book Room.
For further information, please visit or call the Donohue Rare Book Room at (415) 422-2036.
