My kids and I enjoy Phaidon Press books like "The Art Museum", "The Ocean", etc. and I think this will stand with those as one of the most interesting and referenced tomes in our home. An excellent academic resource, it also provides regional demographics and social information. It is comprehensive and beautiful to look at and use. I like that the scale to which specific cities and regions were mapped were well thought out with regards to usefulness.
I think for a book so well put together, beautifully bound and indexed, full of stunning pictures, images and information- this is a deal, a gem and an essential for anyone who has a student at home. Also good for the armchair traveller, you will not be disappointed.
If you live in a small space(like a dorm room) this is NOT the reference book for you, likely. Oxford also publishes a more compact, concise version that might suit those who do not want to accomodate the 'coffee table book' size that this beauty is.
All maps are easy to locate and navigate; the Gazetteer of the Nations and the satellite images of Earth are second to none. There is no need to say that I am fully satisfied with my new atlas.
This Atlas is not an aerial photo display but rather a stunning colour representation of countries and regions drawn in the traditional way with mountains that look like mountains and valleys that look like valleys.
A genuine piece of artwork printed in Malaysia on quality thick bond paper. A joy to behold.
