Their description reads:
[A unique piece of workmanship, our classic Smallest Book in the World is the only miniature book of this size to be printed as an edition of a complete text. It contains the Lord's Prayer in seven languages: British and American English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish. Each page has been printed using type with a shank length of less than half a centimetre.

5 x 5 mm, letterpress printed, thread sewn, handbound in leather and decorated with genuine gold blocking. Each book is placed on a red velvet cushion. The protective Plexiglas cassette comes complete with a built-in magnifying glass for studying the individual characters and is packed in a presentation box decorated with gold lettering.

This little masterpiece is a handmade rarity and can no longer be produced in this quality for the price, so place your order while stocks of the first and only edition last!]
