This collection includes brochures, photographs, news articles, correspondence, and handmade miniature book examples (known here as keepsakes). The materials housed in this collection span decades and borders; from California to Virginia, Canada, and even Glasgow, Scotland.
Many of the materials in series 1 depict the schedules and events for each Grand Conclave and illuminate what it was like to attend the conferences. The keepsakes and artifacts associated with the conclaves are excellent examples of ingenuity and creativity in the book-making field. From books made of buttons with accordian-style pages to minuscule scrolls that require a magnifying glass to read, this collection offers a wide variety of miniature book samples and appreciations.
