Finding Aid


Achille St. Onge (1913-1978) was a publisher of miniature books. Publication of miniatures was a hobby as he worked in Worcester for many years at a forge company, then at an envelope company. He selected the work to be published, poured over the type selection, chose the cover layouts, and decided the color and style of the binding. All of the miniatures, are printed on handwoven rag paper. The books are edged in gold with decorative end papers and are bound in genuine leather. St. Onge's papers include correspondence with authors, printers, and the subjects of some of the books. Special Collections also owns copies of all 48 of St. Onge's books.
