HONOUR BOUND: Help Vancouver Artist Robert Chaplin Kickstart His Latest Dream
Vancouver’s own Robert Chaplin has crafted the smallest book ever made and he holds a Guinness World Record to prove it. Of course, if you had ever seen the book, you wouldn’t need to see the record to believe it, because Teeny Ted From Turnip Town is pretty darn small. It’s microchip-sized and requires a scanning electron microscope in order to read it. As the majority of would-be readers are without electron microscopes, it occurred to Robert that perhaps he should make a large(r) print version of the book. Making books (even small ones) costs money, so Robert is launching a kickstarter campaign. Take a look at Robert’s campaign and contribute if you can. The way that Kickstarter works is all or nothing funding. If Robert doesn’t reach his funding target he gets no money, nobody is out of pocket, and the book doesn’t get made. But if he does reach the target, well…that’s another story.
Honour Bound details the many cool things that we feel honour bound to check out because they either represent Vancouver exceptionally well or are inherently super awesome in one way or another
