CATALOGUE

Your curator would like to share the story of her "first book" and the Tiny Book replica she made of it: "My First Book" by Eileen R. Tabios as part of the Marsh Hawk Press "Chapter One Project."

(See Library Photos HERE)



Your curator also would like to share links to two miniature book exhibits that she organized:
"The Miniature Book Collection of Eileen R. Tabios, Author" at the Saint Helena Public Library; and

 "Maliliit Na Aklat" featuring miniature books by Ivy Alvarez, Aileen Cassinetto, Paolo Javier/Emmanuel Lacaba, Matt Manalo, Ulysses Duterte, Sean Labrador Manzano, and E.R. Tabios.

I'm pleased to share my Tiny Books Collection, for which I thank their PUBLISHERS. Under the CATALOGUE below, click on the titles and you will arrive at the blog post about the referenced book(s). The CATALOGUE will be updated over time as books are acquired.
