Plantyn Algemene Wereldatlas

Plantyn Algemene Wereldatlas

September 30, 2012

The Plantyn Algemene Wereldatlas is one of the most sold books in Belgium, it provides very thorough and detailed information about economic, geological, cultrural,… relations between every country in the world. And all this with extremely high resolution imagery of the entire planet.

Not only schools but plenty of geography minded people buy this release every once and a while. The idea was to give it a mature, universal (quite literally), non-schoolbook-look; because it belongs in many people’s houses as well

You can purchase it here.

In the video below you can see a news item on Belgian national television about the publishers handing the 1.000.000th copy over to Dirk Frimout, the first Belgian astronaut.
