If you thought the Worldchanging book was big… Check out this one, it’s huge, 133 lbs!

“According to Guinness World Records, at over five by seven feet (and 133 pounds), this staggeringly beautiful photographic book is the largest published book in the world–about one of the world’s smallest countries.

Bhutan is the last intact Himalayan kingdom. Roughly the size of Switzerland but with a population of about 700,000 people, Bhutan may be diminutive, yet it is home to one of the most astonishingly diverse natural and cultural ecologies on earth. It is often called “the last Shangri-la,” and with good reason. The pristine environment and incomparably kindhearted people make this a truly extraordinary place. “

  1. I had the privilege of reading from this book to an audience in Lexington MA. The copy was on loan from Miter Corp. It has amazing photos of the daily life of the people of Bhutan, and how their life is different, and the same, throughout the author’s trip in Bhutan.

    By the way — the pages are accordion folded, not sewn in.
