Robert Chaplin is a man driven to accomplish the “never been done before”. A true maverick, he is the publisher of The Matchbook (a copy resides in the library of the Tate Museum) and also the smallest book ever written: Teeny Ted from Turnip Town written by Malcolm Chaplin has a total size of less that 0.07mm x 0.10mm. The Robert Chaplin/SFU Nanobook project was produced using a focused-gallium-ion beam with the assistance of Dr. Li Yang, and Dr. Karen L. Kavanagh of Simon Fraser University.
