For the first time ever, National Geographic is offering its Atlas of the World in a version so unique, so exclusive that only 2,000 will ever be created!
The National Geographic Atlas of the World, Platinum Edition will be bound with an elegant Italian leather cover in your choice of black or navy blue with complementary moiré patterned cloth end-sheets and embroidered headbands. The spine will be hand-stamped with decorative silver foil. Inside you’ll find an elegant parchment page printed with an official Statement of Authenticity and the handwritten number of your exclusive edition, overlaid with sheer vellum for added protection.
Each edge of the Atlas is meticulously gilded in silver, and a luxurious ribbon marker is sewn in. To ensure that each volume is truly unique, we will personalize the cover with silver foil stamping, and the authenticity page with 3 lines of your choosing. The result is a one-of-a-kind edition that no other person in the world owns. It will instantly become the most treasured and valuable part of your home library.
For the ultimate in presentation and protection, you can choose to add the elegant clamshell solander case with cloth and leather edging. These cases are the traditional method chosen by collectors to store precious books.
