Earth Platinum, published at the end of February 2012, in an edition limited to 31 copies, is the world’s largest atlas.
The book is 1.8 m (6 ft) high and 1.4 m (4.5 ft) wide.
When opened, it spans 2.8 m (9 ft).
It contains 128 pages of maps, flags and panoramic photographs, and weighs 150 kg (over 300 lb).
It’s the kind of book you can’t read alone: it takes two persons to turn over the gigantic pages.
