Riverside, CA: Bo Press Miniature Books, n.d. Books under 3" tall are considered miniature books. They're generally readable with the naked eye, and easily handled, like regular sized books. Even though miniature books may not be the best vehicles for weighty ideas, I try, in the books I design and illustrate, to proportion the subject matter to the size of my books. They are indeed meant to be read, and, if they don't tackle the profoundest of ideas, they give their owners some intriguing entertainment. In this little book, Pat Sweet plays with Egyptian hieroglyphs, turning the originals into illuminated and historiated letters. She crossed the letter forms with Photoshop to create these illustrations. The original hieroglyph appears at the base of each page. Bound in cream paper boards with spine and cover title labels. Measures 1.25 x 2.25 inches. In fine condition. ARTB/060221.
