Zineramic is the shortest readable material in the world.

Unlike any other books, Zineramic has got only two pages besides the front and back covers. The content is delicate. Please read with care. Zineramic explores our perception and interaction with a reading object and demonstrates the alternative criticality in content and material to readers with a human touch on the product "production" and a humorous reading journey.
