One of the World's Smallest Books

I saw this article on the main Yahoo! page and I had to share it because I'm a fan of miniature books (aren't they so cute?) and I thought it was interesting.

The article, Revealed: A Book the Size of a Ladybug, explains that miniature books are recognized being fewer than 3 inches in length and width; this book is a .138 inches square and .04 inches thick. The university of Iowa owns it, among other books, and before they knew for sure, using a high-end microscope, figured it was a Bible.

It has a larger, sister book and they were both sold at the World' Fair in 1965. After decades apart, they are both now together and it was found out they contain the same content.

I don't know about a book this small, but I would love to have a miniature book collection of my favorite books, just for fun.
