Riverside, CA: Bo Press Miniature Books, 2021. Pat Sweet describes herself as creating illuminated miniature books of curiosity, humor, and delight. She creates both miniature (under 3 inches) and macro-miniature (under 1 inch) books. This book is from a limited edition, which is signed by the artist.

Number 21 of 30 variant copies. Each copy is in a different box, bound in papers to match the box. According to the book artist: "Bo Press Miniature Books began in 2007 with a little book called Celestial Variations. Since then, another one hundred and forty-seven (one hundred and forty-eight now) books have emerged with subjects as diverse as maps of real and imaginary places, poetry, architecture, history, flea circuses, and books themselves.

The History of Bo Press is a collection of every book I’ve ever written, illustrated, designed, and published (that I can remember) since then. This is a fairly easygoing bibliography, and a few lacunae are to be expected from someone like me who hates to keep records. The book listings include title, author, illustrator, pages, dime."

Both volumes are bound in tan marbled paper with paper title labels to spines and front boards. Housed in a slipcase covered in marbled paper and off-white handmade paper with a metal chain lining the seams of where the papers meet. Each volume is 170 pages. Size: Books: 2 3/4 x 2 1/8 inches; Case: 3 x 2 1/4 x 1 5/8 inches. ARTB/091123.
