The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Volume 1...Review & Giveaway!

I have the most charming book to tell you about today.  The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories is just a tiny packet of wonderful! This tiny book (yes, it really is tiny!) was a pleasure to pore through and now sits happily on my nightstand for me to peruse when the mood strikes (most days!).  Here is the scoop...

From hitRECord, the immensely popular open collaborative production company, and its founder, Golden Globe-nominated actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, comes The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1.

The universe is not made of atoms; it’s made of tiny stories.

To create The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known within the hitRECord community as RegularJOE—directed thousands of collaborators to tell tiny stories through words and art. With the help of the entire creative collective, Gordon-Levitt culled, edited and curated over 8,500 contributions into this finely tuned collection of original art from 67 contributors. Reminiscent of the 6-Word Memoir series, The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 1 brings together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size.



How cool is this book and the whole concept overall?  I think it shows such immense talent to write a little blurb that can truly create an entire story.  The illustrations help bring the stories to life and I felt myself getting lost in just one little picture accompanied by just one little sentence.  Pretty remarkable really.  If you are looking for a creative gift idea this is it. Pick up your copy of The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories today on Amazon...
.

I am so happy to tell you that the publisher, Harper Collins, is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Volume 1.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...

I looked at the sample page son Amazon, OMG! How fantastically tongue in cheek the one about the apples and the doctor's wife! Terribly witty, and incredibly clver, my mom would love this. This might have to be a book multiple people get copies of this christmas!

I would give this to my daughter. She is 13, very artistically inclined and only likes to read a little at a time. So essentially this is perfect for her.

Hi, I was about to order this book online... one for me and one for a friend, who lives in Barcelona, but I realized I'm a little short on cash :S

She was only supposed to go backpacking for a month but she has decided to stay there and needless to say this makes me a little sad, when I saw this book I knew that she'd like it as much as me.
