A message from the Managing Director
I'm pleased to say after over 2 years in the making Earth Platinum is now being delivered to libraries , museums and private collectors around the world.
The first copy was launched at a major press conference at National Center for Documentation and Research ( NCDR) in Abu Dhabi on 12/06/2012. Various media pick up the event including TV, and print media, in both Arabic and English.
Guinness World Records attended the London launch and declared Earth Platinum the world's largest atlas.
Peter Barber ( Head of Maps at British Library ) said "The Library's collection of maps is one of the greatest in the world, and the maps are important not only for their use as geographical aids, but also as mirrors of the cultures in which they were created. ........ Earth Platinum will offer a reflection of what people of 2012 felt was worth recording about their very different world. It will be an astonishing resource for researchers in ten, twenty or two hundred years' time."
As a publisher with over 25 years in the business, I am pleased that a book I have published will still be accessible to other generations for centuries to come.
For a book publisher it doesn't get any better than this.
Earth Platinum is a comprehensive world atlas, featuring a world map for each of the thematic topics, Europe map, Canada map, USA map, Australia map, India map and more. I believe Earth Platinum will present the best national geographic map for every country in the world contained in a world atlas. The physical map of the world and political map of world are the largest ever published in a book. In these changing times, comprehensive maps are even more important than ever."
