Not only Small, but Cool
The Nanolab at Simon Fraser University has produced the world's smallest book. How cool. I was reading it (the press release, not the book itself) and thinking - is the book really called "Teeny Ted From Turnip Town" and why was it written by the artist's brother? But I found Robert Chaplin's blog and saw his gorgeous and cool carved objects, including "Rondelle", a lovely carved and inlaid hockey puck and a satirical carving in hematite called "Raven Transforming into a Lawyer" and now I am infatuated with the strange world of the Chaplin brothers, complete with turnips, moose, diamonds and nanotechnology. Kudos for navigating an art and science collaboration with the art part intact. No small feat....
It’s a big feat of the tiniest proportions. Simon Fraser University’s Nano Imaging Lab has produced the world’s smallest published book.
The only catch — you’ll need a scanning electron microscope to read it.
