Roger Huet has for many years produced limited editions for collectors in the specialized market of miniature books. Now he has branched out into the general market with a set of small volumes (and I mean really small – 1 ¼ inch square) housed in plastic boxes. They can be bought either as a set or individually. Sturdy, readable without a magnifying glass, and of high visual quality, the mini-books cover a range of subjects: Love Poems, Aesop’s Fables, Beautiful Biblical Proverbs, as well as practical matters like How to Make a Good Speech. The stuffing of stockings has just been made easier. For more information, check vhuet@colba.net. mRb
