Miniature Book Society

The Miniature Book Society, Inc. is an international non-profit organization chartered in 1983 by the State of Ohio. Its purposes are to sustain an interest in all phases of miniature books, to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to serve as a clearing house for information about miniature books. MBS is an organization interested in promoting ALL aspects of the book arts; we just happen to like small format.

What Is a Miniature Book?
In the United States, a miniature book is usually considered to be one which is no more than three inches in size--height, width or thickness. Some collectors do occasionally acquire slightly larger books. Outside of the United States, books up to four inches are collected as miniature books.
