The Gift Of A MiniBük
by guest contributor Mary L. Holden, writer and editor
February 2, 2012
How often does one get to use a centennial celebration to play with literature in a unique way?
Answer: every 100 years!
My birthplace, Arizona, is also the birthplace of MiniBük. Arizona turns 100 years old on February 14, 2012. The literary moment of February 14, 1912 is lost, but in 2012, Arizona is getting a birthday present in the form of a MiniBük containing the art and poetry of two of its native daughters.
Yavapai: 12 Poems in Honor of Arizona’s Centennial was published in October 2011 by State Farm Insurance as a gift to the National Hispanic Women’s Conference. It features the art of painter Kathryn Henneman (“Yavapai” and “The Weaver”) and a Spanish version of my poetry. A second printing of the book was done for distribution on February 14, 2012 at the state capitol’s birthday party venue. This is a gift to Arizona as well as writers and readers everywhere.
The MiniBük idea is as brilliant as the sunshine that floods Arizona’s landscape. It’s size makes it perfect for single-topic subjects as well as for carrying in a pocket or purse. MiniBük with Business Card is an option for businesses to tell their story in print and offer a business card at the same time. While eBooks are great, MiniBük does not need to be turned on or charged, nor does it take up as many natural resources as the standard paperback or hardcover. It is a great option in this new world of publishing—a world in which anyone can write and publish a book.
Finally, the meaning of “freedom of speech” and “freedom of press,” rights given to us as citizens of the United States, has new and more vibrant meaning through MiniBük.
Consider writing your own biography, sharing your creativity and spreading your wisdom in this new format.
No need to wait for a bicentennial!
