TOKYO, March 13 (UPI) -- A Japanese printing company said it has created what it believes to be the world's smallest book, with pages measuring only .03-inches in each direction.

Toppan Printing said the book, which contains names and illustrations of flowers, cannot be read with the naked eye and is being sold with a magnifying glass and a larger copy for $305, The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported Wednesday.

Toppan said it has applied to Guinness World Records, which currently lists the world's smallest book as a 30-page Russian book called "Chameleon."
