Miniature books go on display at National Library of Scotland

A collection of tiny books that can only be read with a magnifying glass goes on show today at the National Library of Scotland (NLS) in Edinburgh.
The smallest of the books, at just 0.9mm tall, is Old King Cole, in an edition of the children's nursery rhyme that was created by Gleniffer Press in the town of Paisley in 1985, and held the world record for being the tiniest book for 20 years.
