Wikipedia tells: “Micrography, also called microcalligraphy, is a Jewish art form developed in the 9th century, with parallels in Christianity and Islam, utilizing minute Hebrew letters to form representational, geometric and abstract designs. Colored micrography is especially distinctive because these rare artworks are customarily rendered in black and white.”
There are 40+ really amazing examples of contemporary micrography: from advertisement and movie posters to trash-art and self-portraits.
