The book is actually a tablet that's five millimeters (0.196 inches) square. It is pictured in the Guinness record book perched on a pencil eraser. Each letter in the text is the size of a red blood cell or a small bacterium. "One can get an appreciation of the size of the text from the fact that 10 lines can comfortably fit within the thickness of a single strand of human hair," Sinha said.
"Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom" weighs in at more than 130 pounds and stands at five by seven feet, nearly as big as a Ping-Pong table. The book features more than 100 pages of spectacular images of a country often referred to as "the last Shangri-la," and showcases a variety of new digital, photographic and printing techniques.
