University of Iowa Library’s Smallest Book

Leave a comment

ImageThe University of Iowa Library identified the smallest book in their collection as a 4mm X 4mm tiny book published by Toppan Printing Company. This tiny book was recently discovered to be a section of the Bible published to coincide with the New York World’s Fair in  1965.   Although no current value has been established for this ultra micro-miniature tome, the library says it has no interest in selling their tiny treasure.
