The premise for Mimeo Mimeo No. 8, the Curators’ Choice Issue, was seemingly simple. We contacted a number of librarians, publishers, poets, printers, book dealers, book collectors, and others bibliographically inclined with an invitation to curate six pages of Mimeo Mimeo with six items from their personal or institutional collections. Looking back on our initial request, the concept was rather lacking in options: six pages, six images, and six mini-essays. Sixteen contributors chose to answer our call. Some found pleasure in our constraints, vague as they were, and provided the asked-for images and essays, but always with elements of the personal that made their selections truly unique. Others broke free completely, refusing to be so select in documenting their bildungsromans in the bibliographic World-at-Large. Whatever the course of action, the end results are exemplary.
