Review quote

"'I learned about the world from Philip's atlases, and I'm delighted to see their latest product can re-create the sense of wonder all over again. The new Universal Atlas manages to shrink the earth into one volume whilst losing none of its scale and power. The maps are clear. Strong colours define the physical geography without losing the fine detail of human settlement. This is compulsive reading, for those who want to know and those who want to dream.' MICHAEL PALIN 'The Philip's Atlas is everything a great book of maps should be - clear, comprehensive and studiously accurate. I've kept a Philip's Atlas to hand for years - it's a magnificent invitation to understand our planet. No greater window on the world could exist than an atlas and the new Philip's is an invaluable source of geographical information without equal.' SIR RANULPH FIENNES 'My Philip's Atlas is invaluable in planning my adventures, for the detail of its maps and the host of useful facts that are well and clearly laid out.' SIR CHRIS BONINGTON 'As absorbing as it is important - for explorers and armchair travellers alike, the Philip's Atlas is a genuine page-turner. Every household should have one.' BENEDICT ALLEN 'The most vivid images and precision mapping of our beautiful world I have seen - reminds us again just how precious and beautiful and fragile our planet is.' BEAR GRYLLS"show more
