The universe isn't made of atoms; it's made of tiny stories. Praised by fans and critics alike, "The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories" has been one of the most beloved projects to come out of actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's online creative coalition hit Record. With Volume 2, the journey continues with a fresh selection of stories small in scope but outsize in impact. To create "The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories" - half short story collection, half communal poem (Flavorwire) - Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known within the hitRECord.org community as Regular JOE, directs thousands of collaborators to tell tiny stories through words and art. With the help of the entire creative collective, Joe culls, edits, and curates the massive numbers of contributions into a finely tuned collection that is at once ingeniously illustrated ...witty [and] meaningful ("Entertainment Weekly"). "The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Volume 2" once again brings together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size.

"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 [hitRECord.org] 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 "HitRECord.org, 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 "A brand new collection of moving (and funny!) stories from the hitRECord family and It Books." -- Entertainment Weekly
