Six Poems—Tiny Book

While looking at LaTeX templates for brochures I noticed LianTze Lim’s PocketMod package which allows one to typeset eight smaller pages on a single letter-size sheet of paper. After printing it one would fold it in half lengthwise, then fold it in half again and then again. That produces a tiny book that fits in the pocket of a t-shirt or can be used as a bookmark.

So, I put together six poems into a book which you are free to download and print, if you wish. Although I added color to the PDF file, I normally print this in black and white and landscape mode and use it as a bookmark.

For those who would like the see the LaTeX commands, I placed the files on Google Drive under Six Poems.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. If you want to try it, you could get a free account at Overleaf where you could start with Lim’s template and use my code as an example of how to format a poem. Stories would be similar. I think a very short story would fit across all of those pages. I may try one next now that you’ve given me the idea.

      Perhaps a poem of about 25-30 lines would fit on one of those pages, but it could go to the next page if it is longer. You can always shrink the font, but at some point it may become unreadable.

      Thank you, Mary! I am glad you liked this.
