World's Smallest Book

Renowned German typographer Joshua Reichert will release the world's smallest book in the World Measuring 2.4 x 2.9 mm this week at the Concept Store within Selfridges’ Wonder Room.

The leather bound graphic ABC picture booklet is exclusively produced in the traditional book city of Leipzig where the idea was originally born. It is presented in a wooden box and includes a magnifying glass. “It was printed in the usual way, but all the machinery and tools had to be created in miniature first.” The book is published by Die Gestalten.

Printed in an edition of 300, Selfridges has the last available stock of the title and at £70 a snip for such a collectable item.
