What Are the Biggest and Smallest Books in the World?

In 1978, the story of Three Blind Mice was brought out in a book scarcely larger than the average letter on this page!

The book, the smallest bound book ever produced, was just 1/12 of an inch high, 1/12 of an inch wide, and only 1/32 of an inch thick.

The largest single book ever produced was the Super Book, which measured nine feet in height and, when opened spanned a distance of more than ten feet!

When it was printed in Denver, Colorado, in 1976, it weighed 557 pounds!
