Is it a recipe for moon tea you seek? Perhaps you’d like to learn more about the century that only had 99 years. It’s all here in the delightful Miniature Book Collection created by the dedicated souls at the University of North Texas Libraries Digital Collection group. The collection includes almost 3000 items, and 299 of them have been scanned and added to this website in recent years. The digital collection includes a copy of Cicero from 1521, prayer books from the mid-1600s, and more recent chapbooks by contemporary artists. Visitors to the collection can use their search engine, or just browse around at their leisure. The site also includes issues of the Miniature Book Society Newsletter dating back to 1989 and the archives of the Miniature Book News, which was incorporated into the Newsletter in 2001.
