RE: [miniaturebooks] Award?
The Norman Forgue Award is presented annually to a member of the Miniature
Book Society for "outstanding contribution to the world of miniature books."
It differs slightly from another similar award that is given to recognize
contributions to the organization itself. It is a very prestigious award,
and has been given sparingly to those who have done most to advance the
understanding and collection of miniature books.
Although I have all his miniature books -- and many of his "regular"
books -- I never met Norm. But, I know many people who did know him, and
they all hold him in the highest esteem.
Hard to believe he has a great grandson ... Stephanie is just too young!

Let me introduce myself.
I'm the webmaster for the MBS website and the vice president of the Society.
I have a short article about your great grandfather which you would
probably enjoy reading, but I only have it in hard copy. If you will
send me your address, I'll mail you the information. Norman was a
very talented printer and publisher who published both full-size as well
as miniature books.
