Grimm's Hansel and Gretel was first published in 1812 but tales of children outwitting ogres who had captured them date back to rhe middle ages and especially in the Baltic regions. The Gleniffer Press of Paisley and Wigtown was founded in 1967 by Helen and Ian Macdonald as a hobby private press, producing home and business stationery. By the early 1970s, the press became recognised throughout the world for making miniature books, continuing until 2007, when it closed after 40 years. In total, Gleniffer Press produced 57 different titles, in 13,500 little books, all hand-bound. The Macdonalds were among the founding members of the Miniature Book Society, which still thrives to this day. Helen and Ian were elected honorary members of the society on their retirement.
