The Little Book of Big Ideas

Evan Lorenzen compiles ideas concerning our existence into pint-sized tomes

May 20, 2014 | By Staff Writer

Evan Lorenzen has found a way to condense the biggest ideas concerning our existence into a tiny book no larger than a safety pin. The ‘Little Book of Big Ideas’ presents ideas like growth, love, death and war quite fittingly in a fragile book that is hard to grasp. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Lorenzen says “”I really enjoy watching people handle the books. At first, they struggle to figure out how to hold it, let alone turn the pages. Once they do get a good grip on it, the book seems to become extremely precious and fragile because it can easily get destroyed with something as simple as a sneeze. For me, it’s most rewarding to see people sucked into these miniature worlds while also having to fumble with the idea of being delicate.” So far, Lorenzen has also created the “Mini Book of Major Events”, continuing his exploration into these pint-sized tomes.
