Oversized enough? I keep this mostly for historical value, because yes, that‘s a map of the Soviet Union it‘s open to.

azulaco We had this huge atlas when I was growing up, and I wish I still had it. Yes, it had USSR, and other Cold War-era countries (Yugoslavia and East Germany, anyone?). It was a terrific atlas. I used to browse it all the time because I was a nerdy kid like that. 2y
MargoCatts @azulaco Me too! I love maps. I think Germany reunified just after we got it and we got a mailer that we‘d be getting a new insert. We never did. Maybe all the changes after came too many, too fast. Now I‘m glad to have it as a relic 2y

When I was growing up, it seems like every family had an atlas lying around somewhere. I don't know that's the case anymore, when everything gets googled 😋

Oryx Yeah, I kind of miss just picking up an atlas and poring over it at random, just because it was there. 3y
Cinfhen So true, but we had and still have and treasure our spinning globe 🌎 💚 3y
TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen I am on the hunt for the perfect globe for our house, I love them! I have a couple small ones, but they are purely decorative. 3y

TheKidUpstairs @Oryx I remember doing that all the time as a kid! As you said, just because it was there. 3y
LeahBergen I still keep a lovely big atlas on top of my "travel books" bookcase. ❤️ 3y
Hooked_on_books I totally remember paging through our family atlas as a kid; it was stored in a side table/book case. I loved that thing. 3y
