Bibelot

The Internet brings us wondrous tidbits, now and again. Today it brought me an email from someone who bought one of the hand-bound copies of The Evil Gazebo


Hi Bernie,

Somehow I stumbled upon an exposition of the word "bibelot" and behold: in
addition to its normal meaning of a small decorative object or trinket, it
has an older and now less common meaning of "a miniature book of elegant
design". So naturally, I thought of you. Isn't it wonderful that we have a
word for that?
