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.
