This collector holds the biggest collection of small books in the world.
Jozsef Tari from Hungary has over 5200 miniature books in his collection, none of them above 3 inches.  As well as having the biggest collection, he also has one of the smallest book in the world, measuring at 2.9 x 3.2 millimetres (0.12 x 0.13 of an inch).  He decided to set up a website to keep in touch with other small book collectors, to encourage, further knowledge and trade / swap between them.  His collection has steadily being growing since 1972, with the majority of them in Hungarian, but also many other languages from around the world.  The oldest book he has in his possession, is more than 100 years old.  I have included a selection of his books below, this includes his bookshelf, to house miniature collection.
