Matthias Buchinger (June 2, 1674 – January 17, 1740), sometimes called Matthew Buckinger in English, was a German artist, magician, calligrapher, and performer who was born without hands or feet and was 29 in tall. Buchinger was especially noted for his micrography, in which illustrations consist of infinitesimal text. More info here.
