Welcome Miniature Book Society to your XXVII Grand Conclave in Princeton! Collectors, artists, and enthusiasts for small print will spend four lovely days in Princeton this week, holding meetings, touring, eating, and sharing their latest treasures (under 3 inches please).
We will entertain the group on Saturday, August 29, 2009 with tours of the Cotsen Children’s Library, the Graphic Arts Collection, and the Princeton University Art Museum. Sunday afternoon is a huge book fair, which is open to the public: http://www.mbs.org/conclave.htm. If you are in the area, I recommend you drop by the fair.
