The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago has an incredibly rare book collection on display for the first time ever, but you might need a magnifying glass to read them! Tiny books from the Fairy Castle Library will be the focus of the exhibit’s public conservation project this week. First and only edition, these books include hand-printed versions of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan with custom illustrations and John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.
