The Miniature Book Society's Traveling Exhibit

The Traveling Exhibit was created by the Miniature Book Society to introduce contemporary miniature books to audiences across the country in order to generate interest in and to educate the general public about miniature books. It features books entered into last season's Annual MBS Competition, "Distinguished Books" from previous competitions and other outstanding examples of contemporary miniature book publishing.

The Miniature Book Society, Inc. is an international non-profit organization chartered in 1983 by the State of Ohio. Its purposes are to sustain an interest in all phases of miniature books, to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to serve as a clearinghouse for information about miniature books.
