So how does the book publishing industry battle back as they watch its market share being slowly nibbled away by e-readers and tablets? Well, by churning out an incredibly massive 6 by 4 1/2 foot world atlas with a price tag of $100,000 of course.

The Platinum Edition of Millennium House's newest atlas—simply titled Earth—stands taller than the average person, and requires at least a couple of skilled pageturners to browse through its 128 pages. The book took over 100 cartographers, geographers, and photographers more than four years to create, and this special monstrous edition is limited to just 31 individually-numbered copies. There's no word on whether an electronic version will be made available for the Kindle or iPad, and we're assuming that's because it would weigh in at a hefty four terabyte download.

I wonder how sturdy the paper is. It would really suck to accidentally tear it while turning pages.
