About My Library
I generally collect items that are under 4 inches, but prefer those that are under 3 inches or smaller. My choicest items are hand-made, hand-bound, hand-illustrated or hand-colored mini books, antique miniatures, limited edition mini's from small private presses and those small tomes with unique bindings. I also collect mass market miniatures. Since they are less expensive and much more widely available, I have many more of this type. Running Press miniature editions, for example, are beautifully designed, incredibly well made, and very inexpensive little books. My catalog at LibraryThing also includes full-size books. I'm interested in books on printing, the book arts, archeology, mormonism, history, family history, art, and childrens books. I also enjoy large size "coffee-table" books. I have good bibliographic control over my collection, but LibraryThing just adds another dimension. I particularly like the graphic displays.
About Me
I have been a miniature book collector since 1983, though I have many other interests, and love reading all kinds of literature. My specific interests include archeology, genealogy, family history, religion, travel, reading, stamp collecting, mission work and keeping up with my 32 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. I am a retired academic health sciences librarian and worked in a medical school library for 37 years.
