During his stay in a sanatorium, author Robert Walser wrote several short manuscripts in condensed, microscopic handwriting on whatever was handy: tiny scraps of paper, letters, book covers, receipts, business cards. Walser used the technique as a way to escape writer’s block, like the way an artist doodles for inspiration. These “microscripts” weren’t discovered (and decoded) until after Walser’s death in 1956.During his stay in a sanatorium, author Robert Walser wrote several short manuscripts in condensed, microscopic handwriting on whatever was handy: tiny scraps of paper, letters, book covers, receipts, business cards.
