The 65-Pound "Earth" Atlas

Weighing in at over 65 pounds, "Earth" is the world's largest atlas ever published. The big book from Millenium House is almost 2' tall, making it a true coffee table book. It is so big you could actually make it into a piece of furniture. Its massive size will undoubtedly make it hard to find a bookshelf large enough to hold, so plan ahead for this volume.

The 576 page atlas has 160 pages of maps, some which fold out to 4’ x 6’. "Earth" will only be published in an exclusive run of 3,000 copies and will cost over $3,000. A "Gold Earth" edition will also be available with gold leather, gilding and gold-plated corners.
