, January 31, 2013

 

Earth Platinum, the world’s largest Atlas, will be showcased at the World Luxury Expo in Riyadh from February 10-12. The atlas, published by Australia’s Millennium House, weighs 200 kg and measures 6ft x 9ft. Only 31 copies of the atlas exist. The atlas is priced at $100,000.
 
The aim in producing Earth Platinum has been to create a benchmark in cartography and to leave a legacy for future generations, as the atlas shows the world in as much detail as was possible at the time of publication, the company said.
