Paperman by Disneyis a wordless tale of romance between two strangers in mid-century New York City, the movie is a simple construct, supremely well-rendered, and in black-and-white, except for a few crucial blotches of red lipstick.

My second miniature book was a poem published in 1593 “Her Face, My Heart” printed letterpress in 6 pt Garamond 459 types. Dedicated to my wife, the type was imposed in such a way that the entire book was printed on one side of the sheet, which was turned and printed again making two books per sheet. It was bound in Japanese washi and foil stamped in gold. It measures 3/16” x 13/16”.
