The Ideal Miniature Library

Cuckoo Books

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
