Guinness World Records 2015

The latest edition of the Guinness World Records has arrived in the library. It is amazing to consider that it is celebrating its 60th anniversary, as the very first edition came out in 1955. Sixty years ago in New Zealand the Rimutaka rail tunnel was opened, the last polio epidemic broke out and the first long-distance flight into Antarctica took place.

This copy also has an amazing 3D App which unlocks 3D images and makes them burst out onto the page. [Go to page 6  and scan the QR code to download the app. ] If you scan a page with a “See it 3D ” sign, for example  Living planet [on page 42] you will find images coming to life from the page. By scanning the whale you will find yourself looking out at marine life through an undersea  submarine.
