Dating back thousands of years, thumbnail art had its heyday in the 16th and 17th centuries, when tiny paintings were often enclosed in jewelry boxes and given as gifts. Today, contemporary artists continue to create incredible masterpieces, some of which are no bigger than the tip of your finger. In honor of these painters, craftsmen and manufacturers of today, Books of chronicles recently published an art book titled think small which presents “the smallest art in the world”.

Written by Eva Katz, the book features miniature art from 24 creatives from around the world. “From charmingly petite to breathtakingly diminutive,” the volume includes 200 color photographs as well as fascinating interviews with each artist.

The Coffee Table Book includes work from some of the artists previously featured on My Modern Met. There are miniature hand-thrown pottery by Jon Almeda, tiny landscape paintings by Dina Brodsky and pill-sized watercolors by Lorraine Loots. Other featured artists include Shay Aaron and her Tiny Clay Meals; Khara Ledonne and her pocket medallions; and Rosa de Jong’s micro-worlds floating in test tubes. These works of art may be small, but they are sure to make a big impression.

think small is currently available for purchase at Amazon.

For those who can’t get enough of all things miniature, Chronicle Books recently released an art book featuring “the world’s smallest art.”
