Minipops is a collection of famous people drawn really pixelly small by Craig Robinson. The first collection of over 800 Minipops was published in 2004 by Mitchell Beazley (Amazon.com) and as a German Edition in 2006 by Eichborn. It’s small and chunky book, 128 pages, and hardback. Minipops are now available on the iPhone for your viewing pleasure together with landscape “Guess Who?” quiz mode.
The iPhone application includes a collection of 1,000 Minipops wrapped up in a standard iPhone app interface. Whilst this could have been more specific to Craig’s work, I suppose it is only a reference library. You can however save Minipop to Photos (use the image for one of your contacts or email it to a friend) or tap and hold Minipop to open relevant Wikipedia page. Nice feature obviously not available in a book =]

Cost: $0.99 (normally $2.99)
