Just as Britain was stretching her empire around the globe, many Britons became obsessed with the very, very small. From a trove of handmade books by Charlotte and Branwell Brontë (none of them larger than two inches) to tiny paintings, doll houses, fairies, and microscopes, miniatures fascinated the Victorians, who enjoyed pushing the boundaries of scientific knowledge, mechanical production, and human perception to explore realms beyond the everyday. Here Laura Forsberg reads miniature-influenced fiction by George Eliot, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Lewis Carroll alongside minor genres like the doll narrative, fairy science tract, and thumb Bible.
