Dear Miniature Book Aficionado,

Robert E. Massmann was a giant in the world of miniature books.  Over a 47-year period, he published more than 100 miniature books of extraordinary creativity under the REM Miniatures imprint.   The attached catalog includes many of these marvels – dos-à-dos bindings, scrolls, peep shows, a lollipop book, a pop-up book, ABC books, a matchbook, a turnover book, spinner books, telescoping books, stamp albums, a somersault book and the pièce de résistance, a 3-dimensional paper mill holding 2 shape books.

Bob published his first miniature book in 1962 and his last in 2009.  All were published in New Britain, Connecticut.  Catalog 80 is a tribute to this wonderful friend who passed away in 2013 at the age of 89.  I have grouped his books and keepsakes together.  His bibliographies, one-of-a-kind stamp albums (never before offered), Christmas cards and prospecti are grouped separately.  Lastly, are two books honoring him published by the Goddard Library and the Miniature Book Society.

Bob did not print his books but he did design them and bind them by hand.  They were never bound in leather.  His son Ernie is a professional artist who illustrated most of the books and son Rick did the computer typography.  His wife Eloise did much of the hand-coloring.  REM Miniatures was a family affair.

Bob Massmann was my first friend and mentor in the Miniature Book Society.  He was extremely generous with his vast knowledge.  I asked him countless questions and he always had the answer.  Thanks to his family members and friends, I am able to offer this special catalog. Some of the items will have personal inscriptions in them.  A small gift of REM ephemera will be included with your order, while supply lasts.
