Balearic Islands Guide and Charts Recommendations ?

We'll be going to the balearic islands this year and need a nautical guide and paper charts. Any recommendations? What is good, what is bad? Our preferred languages are german, english or spanish.

The only thing I find is thoese French SHOM charts are printed on toilet tissue, very easily dog-eared. Ther're good, you do need a bit of french though.

I can find two editions of the book you mention, one from 2003 and one from 2006. It looks like there might be a newer one (2009? 2010?) but I can't find it.
UPDATE: I could find the 2011 edition. Will be available in march!

boatman61:
On shom.fr I can't seem to find any charts for the med...

I've had the french Navicarte costal charts a couple of years ago which were ok but don't know how they compare with others.

Used to, but no longer. They are fully international charts (means everything is in English, or there is a translation)
Pricey, sales are slumping...
