The Little Farm Press publishes limited edition hand-coloured Miniature Books and Miniature Etchings by Jane W. Conneen. The books are between 1 1/2" and 2 1/2", making them easily readable. Sometimes the text is only a short introduction to the illustrations, other times it is lengthier and interspersed with illustrations. However, the emphasis is always on the hand-coloured illustrations. The etchings run from 1" to 5" image sizes. Both books and etchings are inspired by garden, flower and herb subjects as well as travel to Ireland, England, France, Spain, and in the United States and Canada.
