From the Facebook event page:

If you don't know Robert Chaplin personally, there's a good chance you've heard of him over the last few months. Chaplin is the creative mastermind behind the Guinness Book of Records World's Smallest book, TEENY TED FROM TURNIP TOWN and a few months ago he took to Kickstarter to make his dream of creating a large print edition of the world’s smallest book. worked and now, just in time for Christmas,

"TEENY TED FROM TURNiP TOWN" is OUT and we are gonna Party!

Originally carved into a microchip and requiring Simon Fraser University’s scanning electrograph microscope to read it, “TEENY TED” was ?truly once so teeny-tiny, the entire book was no bigger than a strand of the hair on your head.
Robert is a long time Alcuin member, and he's got lots of other wonderful feathers in his cap, with book titles like DELiCiOUS CHiCKEN SOUP, TeN CoUNTiNG CaT, The elephant Book and BRUSSELS SPROUTS & UNiCORNS! For more on Robert's work, see this post over at
