Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Kingdom is the Largest Book in the World

Bhutan is a small mountainous country blessed with scenic beauty. This tiny country can now boast of being the subject of the world’s largest book. The world’s largest book is a collection of photos from this tiny country and is titled Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Kingdom. It measures about 5 feet wide and about seven feet long.

At about 133 pounds, it can kill if it fell over your head. MIT Scientist Michael Hawley wrote this book in order to fund the education of the Bhutanese children. In spite of being a beautiful country, there are tourist restrictions and thus has contributed to the poverty there. The book costs $30, 000 and I am sure you would love to get this book in your shelf, if it is big enough.

Otherwise, lay it on a large coffee table and make all your friends envy you and your taste in books. Perhaps such publicity stunts are required to gather money for poor nations that cannot even afford education for its youth. It is available on Amazon.
