This miniature edition of Carl Sandburg’s 1959 address to Congress, celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s inauguration is only 6.6 centimeters high. A book this small can easily get lost on library shelves, so a special enclosure was made.
The book is housed inside a custom four flap wrapper, which sits inside a larger cover. The inside is padded out with corrugated board to keep the tiny book from moving around inside.
This little sweetie – one of only 2000 made – can now be stored safely on our library shelves!
Find the book here.
