This exquisite limited edition atlas takes cartography to a new level. For the map enthusiast, the collector, the armchair traveller, or for those who enjoy luxury, this beautiful leather-bound edition is a “must-have”. Highly detailed maps, produced by a team of more than 100 international cartographers, geographers and oceanographers are the foundation of this book. Each country in the world is described and illustrated in detail with focus on the geography, history, culture, and unique features. Earth is special for a number of reasons, not least the fact that each copy (including its case) is lovingly hand bound in leather. As such only a certain number can be delivered at any one time.
If your budget won't stretch to buying Earth you might want to consider The World Atlas, which is physically the same size as Earth and has all the maps, but without the pictures. However it is still a worthy publication in it's own right having won the 2010 ITMA Atlas of the Year award-see below.
Please note, you should order from this site only if you are resident within Britain and Ireland. For all other countries contact Alan Smith (email@example.com) and he'll advise you accordingly.
