world's biggest book

the worlds biggest book has been created. it's a six-by-nine-feet (two-by-three-metres) atlas. which you can buy for a cool $100,000. the book contains maps of whole continents, as well as sharp images of famous sites collaged together from 1,000 individual pictures. the book took around a month to produce and australian publisher gordon cheers is limiting the print run of his monster atlas to 31. he has already sold two volumes to museums in the united arab emirates and is confident he will sell the whole lot. cheers worked for british publishing giants penguin and then random house, but neither firm was interested in his project, so he left to found his own company.
