Manchester Community Library and Northshire Bookstore are thrilled to present Kate Ünver, a lifelong collector of nearly 1,000 tiny items, who 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 and organizes them into sections on tiny food, diminutive wildlife, petite pottery, and more.

Kate Esme Ünver is a social media and communications professional who's passionate about storytelling, art, and design. In 2012, Kate launched @dailymini, a digitally curated space that promotes miniatures and small-scale news through interviews and studio visits with internationally renowned artists and designers. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and provides social media consultancy services to miniature makers around the world. An avid tennis player, she's also a well-traveled motorcyclist and life-long collector of miniatures. She lives in New York, NY.

"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." — Reviewed by Sarah Knight
