Untitled document

The world’s largest atlas made its debut at an appropriate venue—the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest trade fair for books, held each October in Germany. The atlas, created by Sydney, Australia, publisher Millennium House and named Earth: Platinum Edition, measures 183 by 137 centimeters (6 x 4.5 feet), weighs 120 kilograms (264 pounds), and sells for US$100,000. Only 31 copies will be produced. The atlas contains 128 pages and more than 45 images of the finest contemporary maps, as well as images of famous landscapes, and is considered an artistic showpiece: a time capsule for collectors and institutions, including museums and universities.
