Join Book Culture LIC on Friday, May 24th at 6:30pm as we welcome author Kate Esme Ünver and book photographer, John Saponara, who will be discussing the new release of their new book, The Book of Mini: Inside the Big World of Tiny Things. A small reception will follow the discussion.
Embrace the not-so-small world of minis–and your own tiny book!
From teeny burgers and minuscule handbags to furniture no larger than a quarter, this mind-blowing collection of squeal-worthy miniatures features more than 250 of the tiniest creations from all over the world. John and Kate collaborated to showcase the smallest of the small with readily recognizable objects–the result was a series of stunning photographs, blown up 10x larger to blow you away.
Kate Ünver, a lifelong collector of nearly 1,000 items, has curated unique and extraordinary miniatures on her Instagram account, @dailymini, since 2012. In The Book of Mini, she selects hundreds of pieces of artwork–many of which have never been seen before–and organizes them into sections on tiny food, diminutive wildlife, petite pottery, and more. Also included are interviews with collectors and artists exploring their methods, influences, and how they came to adore everything mini.
Featuring hundreds of photographs and a collectible miniature book, The Book of Mini is a must-have book for the tiny lover in your life.
