Nanotechnology lab produces world's smallest book

Abstract:
Using nanotechnology to make a book you can't read - this definitely qualifies as an entry in our "slow news Friday" section.

The world's first, nanoscale book was published as a work of fine art, April 9, 2007 by Robert Chaplin at the Nano Imaging Facility of Simon Fraser University. This book, complete with an International Standard Book Number (ISBN-978-1-894897-17-4), is entitled ‘Teeny Ted From Turnip Town'. It was written by Malcolm Douglas Chaplin and is a fable concerning the success of Teeny Ted from Turnip town and his victory in the Turnip contest at the annual county fair. It is at present the world's smallest published book.
