Atlases

An atlas is a collection of maps; it is typically a bundle of maps of Earth or a region of Earth.

Atlases have traditionally been bound into book form, but today many atlases are in multimedia formats. In addition to presenting geographic features and political boundaries, many atlases often feature geopolitical, social, religious and economic statistics. They also have information about the map and places in it.

Byron Rizzo
¿Cuál es el animal con voz, que en la mañana camina en cuatro patas, por la tarde en anda en dos, y al anochecer en tres? Un Edipo contemporáneo respondería: El mismo que comenzó a estudiar con pesados Atlas y enciclopedias en papel, luego lo hizo con software educativo como Encarta, y ahora, estudia con artículos de Wikipedia. Todo en el transcurso de un día generacional, o una vida.
Byron Rizzo, The Ephemeral Age: Keys to understand fast times and scheduled obsolescence

Darling, who made you believe stumbling down the aisle was like marching to your death on bloodstained knees? How did it ever come to this? You, thinking love to be a monster sent to torch your lungs and make the atlas in your blood collapse future lineages because you’re afraid.
Cynthia Cisneros, Burned Tongues: Poems
