…just kidding, it's not the tiniest one in the world. This one appears to be smaller.

…just kidding for real: Fall 2009's Ball Peen Hammer, by Adam Rapp and George O'Connor, is the same size as the rest of our books. It's also not exactly adorable, though it more than makes up for that in grit, gloom, perception, humanity, melons, tragedy, poetry, and wit.

    …But when the printer loses its mind and spits out the world’s tiniest cover print-out, some opportunities just can’t be passed up!

    Too funny. I want a wee tiny version of Ball-Peen hammer now.
    I love the description, by the way, especially the melons bit. Not enough books feature melons as a selling point, in my opinion.
