The Earth Platinum Atlas is a larger-than-life way to check out the planet.

Measuring 6" x 4.5" the mammoth book of maps is published by Millennium House and has is well on its way to being dubbed the biggest Atlas in the world. It would take at least two very tall and fairly strong readers to flip these compelling and outstandingly detailed pages that would leave readers exposed to some pretty amazing Earth-scape photography and statistics, albeit, exhausted.

Composed of a compilation of over 100 cartographers, geographers and photographers from across the globe, the massive, double-spread publication is only available in limited quantities (31 to be exact.)

It also costs the same amount as a luxury automobile, meaning only serious land-lovers will be clambering to get their hands on a copy.
