Looking for a little literature?
If you mean little in the very literal sense, then you need to check out the Willis Library at the University of North Texas (UNT), which houses a truly fantastic collection of miniature books, all measuring less than four inches tall.
And what’s more, there are almost 3,000 of them — we bet you never knew miniature books were so popular!
Miniature books are defined as being under four inches tall. But other than their tiny size, they’re just like “real” books, with printed pages, binding, and covers. UNT houses thousands of them, some dating back thousands of years!
The university’s tiny book collection began in the 1930s, after some miniature children’s books were donated. Since then, the library has continued collecting mini books, and the collection has become one of its many treasures.
