It's an atlas of epic proportions. In fact, it's one of the largest in the world and Wellington now has its own copy. The Earth Platinum Atlas measures 1.8 metres by 1.4m, weighs 150 kilograms and it will now call the Alexander Turnbull Library home.
Not many have been made and the man looking after the book is library cartography curator, Mark Bagnall.
