Scientist pens the ‘smallest book in the world’

Novosibirsk miniaturist Vladimir Aniskin has created two of micro books with pages sized at 70 to 90 microns (0.07 mm to 0.09 mm). This is 88 times smaller than a book created by Japanese masters in 2013 and registered in Guinness World Records.

‘The smallest book is a task that I set for myself five or six years ago and I have methodically accomplished this goal,’ said the proud author.

As with all good books, it was not a simple task. ‘It took several years and one month – a month of work and several years of preparation.’ The book is on a gold plate on the shear of a poppy seed.
