On Saturday i managed to pick up this beauty in a 10 pence bargain bin along with a few other books on design and architecture. The front is foil blocked and embossed and some of the typography in it is beautiful. I especially love some of the really cool info graphics in it such as the religions of the world. To craft a book of this magnitude must have taken some skill. I’d have loved one of these as a boy as it contains not only maps, but information on the formation of the earth, solar system and constellations. I’m glad Ive given this book a happy home, poor thing!
