a German artist, magician, calligrapher, and performer who was born without hands or feet and was 29 in (74 cm) tall. Buchinger was especially noted for his micrography, in which illustrations consist of very small text. Buchinger was born in Ansbach, Germany, without hands or lower legs. An artist and performer, he "traveled all over Northern Europe to entertain kings and aristocrats as well as hoi polloi with amazing feats of physical dexterity" and was known as “The Greatest German Living” and "Little Man from Nuremberg".
