    I tried my hand in making a tiny "book" that fits in the shirt pocket.
    I used 2.75"x4.25" (1/8 of a Letter) as a page size. I found out that different fonts have very different legibility at low sizes. Calibri (new default Microsoft sans serif font) looks decent at 6 pt, but I wonder if there are any fonts that were specifically designed to look good in small sizes? Any suggestions?

    Another unexpected problem with small fonts, is that the lines they are composed off, are noticeably thinner and, as a result, when printed on laser printer, the toner would simply start crumbling away. I really do not see how to overcome this, other than switching to ink jet printer.

    Anyway, here is what I end up with. This is compact Ageton tables with some instructions. It is to be printed on both side of the paper (duplex, short edge), each page cut in 4 pieces, stacked, folded and stapled.
