Micrography as a popular scribal art, first in biblical codices and later in decorated ketubbot, wall hangings and various other contexts favored by Hebrew scribes. Attention also paid to the late-18th-century invention of lithography, which led to the mass production of micrographic prints, and the continuation of this Jewish art form in modern times.
