Publisher Comments:

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Looper, 500 Days of Summer) made a big splash with The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories—so now hes back with volume 2! One of the most ingenious and successful projects to come out of Gordon-Levitt's online creative coalition hitRECord—an international collaboration of artists and writers—The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 2 offers more quirky, delightfully small, ingeniously illustrated haiku-like tales, proving once more that the universe isnt made of atoms; its made of tiny stories. The best things do come in small packages.


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

I just wanted to give a shout out for The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories 2. I was fortunate to read and review the first volume when it came out and am glad to report that this next book is just as enchanting. The Tiny Book is a collection of illustrations and small statements, so that you find a tiny poem/story for every 2 pages.

The book is a collaboration of different artists - "HitRecord" curates submissions from the public to come up with a careful selection that combines humor, hope and just a little darkness. It's the sort of book that I would have loved as a teenager and still enjoy now, many many years later. The book's cover says: "The universe is not made of atoms; it's made of tiny stories."

There are stories of love (some sad and some happy), I prefer the sad ones and sort of wonder which ones appeal to other readers. There are some that are humorous, that make you take a look at the world around you or poke fun at language. For instance, one of my other favorites refers to loopholes.

The book itself is tiny, easy to carry with you. It's beautifully done with nice thick paper. It's a good book to keep and/or to give to someone with a love of language and a sense of humor. I recommend it highly!

JGL and Wirrow created another tiny beautiful book full of collaborative stories and pictures. Instead of taking a cigarette break, sneak off for a tiny story break. Sure to make you happier and feel more fulfilled.
