Small Gems: Small Books from Reed’s Collection

Often good things come in small packages, and the many small books in the library’s special collections testify to the great variety and beauty possible in tiny books. From a facsimile of a 1320’s Book of Hours (at 10cm high) to a foldout artist’s book showing the audio waveforms of ‘noisy words’ (at 43mm tall), these books both inform and entertain. See this exhibition now through November 1 in the library’s flat cases.
