Bo Press Miniature Books
1 1/16" x 7/8"
78 pages, 25 illustrations.

Book inside books inside a book . This has been called the Droste effect, after their recursive advertisements. This book is a collection of jacket designs for book that only exist inside real books: The Necronomicon, The Whole Art of Detection, If On A Winter's Night A Traveler. Each is presented as if hidden inside a hollow book, for yet another layer of un-reality. The title, of course, is from Magritte's famous painting of not-a-pipe.

Pat Sweet and the Bo Press make miniature illustrated books, maps, portfolios, journals and globes from 1/2" to 3". Subjects range from fans to werewolves to mathematics, but have common themes of curiosity, wonder, mystery, and delight. Member of the Miniature Book Society and IGMA.
