Smallest Library in the World

Since 1972, Jozsef Tari has been gathering miniature books and now he is the proud owner of more than 4500 literary works that includes the smallest book of the world sized 2.9 x 3.2 mm.


Jozsef Tari is runs a printing business, he has always been attracted by the written words, and he started collecting miniature books in 1972. Majority of the items that he collected are in Hungarian, but he has some from Canada, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, US and Mexico. He has only few books from the neighboring countries like Hungary and that is really ironic.

About the topics that he collected, Jozsef Tari is very much interested in subjects related to literature, sports, religion and cooking, but his collection includes only 76 mm sized books or even smaller. His collection includes books that are more than 100 years old, but most of his prized miniature is the smallest book of the world and it measures only 2.9 x 3.2 mm and it fits perfectly into a nutshell.
