We’ve got big news… Mini Books are here! If you haven’t seen one, imagine the cutest little thing you can think of and then add pages to it. They really are that cute!
Mini Books come in two sizes, Compact (5.25″ x 3.5″) and Wallet (3.75″ x 2.5″). Just imagine the possibilities with books this small. Vacationing somewhere but don’t want to appear as a tourist? Not a problem when your travel guide is a Compact Mini Book! Need a day planner to keep track of your appointments? The Wallet size mini book is perfect! Need to send Grandma photos from your Summer Vacation? Mini Book it!
Be sure to take part in the contest and create your own Mini Book, too. It’s almost too easy: go to www.lulu.com, provide the email address associated with your account, create an amazingly inventive Mini Book, and be sure to set your new Mini Book to public access (or it can’t be entered). That’s it!
Lulu’s panel of Mini Book judges (the books are mini — not the judges!) will then select the top 10 most creative and post them to the Lulu.com Mini Book contest page for anyone in the Lulu Community (the author, their friends, family, colleagues — anyone in the world) to vote on. Voting will be open August 4 – August 18, 2009. First place wins $500, second place, $250 and third prize, $125.
Here is our Mini Book video to help inspire you!
This may sound a little strange, but when I was asked to create a short little video about our sweet new Mini Books, I immediately thought of the magical powers these little books have. Which is where Lu the Fairy came in. If you watch the video, I’m sure you’ll see what I mean.
I hope you have as much fun watching this video as we had making it.
