Vancouver Author sets a record for The World's Smallest Book

World's Smallest Book

Robert Chaplin of Vancouver has put together the smallest book in the world. Titled ‘Teeny Ted from Turnip Town’, it was etched using an using a ion beam and special equipment from Simon Fraser University (SFU) scientists back in 2007.

The book measures in at A 0.07 mm by .01mm and is made of 30-linked micro-tablets.

You won’t be able to get a copy of this book at your local book store as there’s only one copy (secured away in a vault somewhere) and to make more would cost upwards to $20,000. Besides it’s so small that it would require a scanning electron microscope to read.
