The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories

The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories: Volume 2

About the Book

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 he’s 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 isn’t made of atoms; it’s made of tiny stories. The best things do come in small packages.

Critical Praise

“From the department of Perfect Hipster Stocking Stuffers . . . Buy it for your brooding-artist cousin, but then selfishly decide to keep it for yourself.” —Philadelphia City Paper

“Not just a coup for [] but also an object lesson in how it works.” —New York Times

“Told with haiku-like precision.” —LA Weekly

“This tiny book is a winner . . . half short story collection, half communal poem.” —Flavorwire, 10 Must Reads for December 2011

“Ingeniously illustrated . . . witty . . . meaningful.” —Entertainment Weekly

“, where tens of thousands of contributors now bring their original music, text, illustrations and footage, lets people really “share” their work - not in the YouTube sense of simply posting something and hoping for an enthusiastic response, but in the true spirit of collaboration.” —Salon

“These clever little stories-really more like illustrated haikus-often pack a wallop despite their slender length, running the gamut from funny to poignant to just plain strange.” —The Hollywood Reporter

“A victory for the enduring power and allure of physical, bound books.” —The Millions

“Gordon-Levitt has culled quirky gems for Vol. 2. A handsome hardbound book full of wit, whimsy, and a little wisdom.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
