In 1968, Ian and Helen McDonald established the private Gleniffer Press in Scotland. During their years of production, they held Guinness World Records for their miniature books, and eventually became honorary members of the Miniature Book Society for their work in microbibliography. The press closed in 2007, and this selection of poems was one of the last books to be printed.
