Re: [miniature books] help
- Dear Neale,
The title 'XS Libris' is likely a play on the Latin phrase 'Ex Libris,'
which means 'from the library of' While the 'XS' probably denotes the
extra small size of your books [as in the clothing size of XS or XL
(extra large)], it also sounds out the 'excess' of your collection
(several hundred books!). While 'XS Libris' is certainly a novel title,
I am slightly concerned that non-bibliophiles, -semioticians, and/or
-linguists might not 'get it.' That said, perhaps the title should tell
the collection like it is--something like 'Wee Books' or 'Tiny Tomes'
might work. Hmmmmm... What do *you* think the title should be?
In any case, I do wish you the very best with your miniature book show
to which I would prance if I lived in Soho!
