Tiny Book Show 

When: Tue., Aug. 16, 1 p.m. 2016



Puppies, babies, army men—everything's more fun when it's tiny. (Well, almost everything. Hey-oh!) Books are no exception. As the proud owner of several tiny tomes (they're surprisingly easy to make—two of mine are pictured below), I got a miniature thrill when I heard that The Tiny Book Show, a project of the itinerant art studio The Creativity Caravan, would be making a stop at Brian Allen's letterpress printing shop in Durham. Artists and writers from around the world have contributed to the collection of handmade books, each no larger than three square inches. Everything you write or draw matters so much more in a limited space, and the result is a literary talisman you can slip into your pocket. Along with Creativity Caravan founders Amy Tingle and Maya Rachel Stein, local artists Janet Guertin and Melinda Henderson Rittenhouse will participate in the show, where you will learn to make a tiny book of your own. Protip: Fortune-cookie fortunes make great tiny bookmarks. —Brian Howe
