And You Thought Cliff’s Notes Were Small

Researchers at Canada’s Simon Fraser University have created the world’s smallest published book, Teeny Ted from Turnip Town. The book measures 0.07 mm by 0.10 mm — which is smaller than the head of a pin — and was made using a focused gallium-ion beam to carve out spaces around each letter on pieces of crystalline silicon. Unfortunately you need an electron microscope to read it and one isn’t supplied with the book, though you can pick one up on eBay for about $20,000. And to think, you thought the world’s smallest book was Zagat’s Guide to Cities Without a Starbucks.
