Someone, for the love of jebus, tell me why I don't have $700 lying around to buy myself this . . .
National Geographic - Around the World in 125 Years. Weighing in at 20kgs for the three volumes, she's 1404 pages (slightly under A3 size) of glorious full-colour images from the back-catalogues of everyone's favourite educational magazine and OH MY GOD IT'S GLORIOUS. I had to be dragged away from the stand at Whitcoulls. The slip cover turns into a display stand! Limited to 125,000 editions worldwide, I doubt they'll be around for long.
