Hi CartoTalk members,

Today at the Frankfurt International Book Fair Millennium House will unveil the world's LARGEST book EVER published. And yes....it is an ATLAS!!

Earth Platinum is another phenomenal piece of work by Millennium House.

The book measures 6ft high by 4.5ft wide. It is a limited edition atlas of only 31 copies and sells for USD$100,000.

The atlas will be released later this year. More to info to come on Millennium House's website once they return from Frankfurt. www.millenniumhouse.com.au

Coincidentally, I was in London this weekend and spotted a copy of Earth on display at Standford's, opened to one of the pages with my maps B)

Good one, Hans. At the risk of veering from the topic of this thread -- I love cartographic coincidences! One of the most notable in my memory was on a flight over northern Ontario. We flew directly over two separate (and remote!) locations for which I had created detailed maps in the distant past. I recognized these places by the configurations of the drainage and road systems. Almost like a "Guess that location" rolled out for my benefit.... :rolleyes:

Thats pretty awesome.

And if large atlases are up your alley, the BBC documentary The Beauty of Maps had an amazing segment on the 1660 Klencke Atlas. Nearly as big at 5'9" x 6'3".
