WORLD's SMALLEST NEWSPAPER



Every morning, millions of people across the world digest all the news that's fit to print, as they read their morning newspaper of choice over breakfast, or on their commute to work. While perhaps a little low-tech in the age of smartphones and e-readers, it's still the medium of choice for many when it comes to digesting current affairs. 


This is one of just 3000 copies printed of the smallest newspaper, measuring just 18.27 x 25.35 mm (0.72 x 0.99 in). You might think it merely looks like a scaled-down paper, but as per guidelines available, it must be an absolute replica - and even be readable, under magnification!


As you can see, this miniature edition of Portugal's Terra Nostra newspaper from February 2012, printed by Nova Gráfica and weighing just 1 gram, is perfectly readable up close.
