Miniature Book Library

The Miniature Book Library was started by Etta Cetera, which is an ongoing mail art project, and exchange of miniature books (no larger than one's palm). You send out 5, she sends 4 from others, and one goes into the Library. I love the idea of small books, and exchanging them through the mail, and Cetera's documentation of the library via the web. Although I would have loved an "about" section on how she decided to make the library, and a few antecedents about some of the books. Either way, the virtual tour was an interesting pictorial insight on it's own. I am currently in the process of making a few books to send :)
