EARTH wins top Mapping Award

Sept 2 2009

EARTH has been named the world's most detailed atlas, winning both the Best Book Based Award and the Best Overall Map Product (the Graham Stanton Award) from the International Map Trade Association (IMTA). The IMTA Awards were held on 7–8 August in Darwin, and recognized the best cartographic-related products produced in the Asia/Pacific region in the past year. The awards are voted for by industry peers and experts worldwide.

Gordon Cheers said “I always thought to achieve a legacy, a reference book needed to have three elements: firstly to be credible, authoritative, and well-researched—this has now been proven by EARTH winning the IMTA award; secondly to be well produced (well bound, finished and built to last)—this has been recognized, as EARTH was also awarded Best Produced Limited Edition Book and Best Overall Book at the Galley Club Awards in June; and lastly to be rare ,cherished and cared for—this has also been achieved, with copies now held in the care of the British Museum, Smithsonian Institute, as well as the finest libraries and institutions around the world. These distinguished endorsements prove that EARTH successfully combines the essential elements, guaranteeing a legacy for generations to come.”

Millennium House debut at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair.

Abu Dhabi, March 23 2009:

It isn't often that publishers get to meet with their readers and have one to one discussions. We have had a great time at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) meeting readers, publishers, scholars and members of the leading business community throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The degree of interest EARTH has created among book lovers, universities, libraries and cultural foundations here in the UAE is beyond our expectations.

We knew the rarity and uniqueness of the Earth collections had already caught the attention of discerning book lovers in the UAE. But the excitement shown to us and the number of orders received at the ADIBF has absolutely delighted us.

His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister of the UAE, opened the Book Fair, and personally signed copy No 0119 of the Royal Blue edition when he visited our exhibit. Millennium House has donated this special signed copy to the Red Crescent charity for children, as a fundraiser.
