A fascinating book about tiny things such as an ice cream sundae, Chanel handbags, a tiny Windsor chair and, best of all, tiny cell phones. Almost any object you can think of may be rendered as a tiny object in this book. The book is organized into sections which include Itty-Bitty Flora, Diminutive Wildlife, and Wee Objects. Wonderful photographs, interviews with other collectors and even a tiny book also contribute to giant-sized pleasure. — Sarah Knight
