Question World Atlas

We are looking for a recommendation for a World Atlas that other ocean crossing cruisers have found useful to have aboard - as a region overview, to feed the dream, etc.

Any recommendations?

(Not electronic - we have charts for the world, paper and electronic, but still are missing a quick reference.)

Thanks! - Livia

Re: World Atlas

I live near a large university and each year they have a book fair to sell older textbooks. I have picked up atlas' that were just a few years old and in very good condition. A call to a local university library could set you up with a low priced, fairly recent book. I paid $5 for mine.
