Tiny Book Collaboration People

What is the Tiny Book Collaboration?

The Tiny Book Collaboration is a collaborative book art project. Every voice deserves a place. Yours are the marks, thoughts, ideas, and words that belong in the Tiny Book Briefcase Library. The sum of these parts makes a rich and varied picture. Love that idea as much as I do? Join me! Check out the Q&A and read about other contributors for inspiration.

An estimated reading time is included at the beginning of each piece.
