Everything you want to know about all sports from the original Olympics to the present day is crammed into the attractively busy pages of this vast wall chart. Fun to browse but also hugely informative, this chart deserves a place on all walls in 2012. Terrifically original publishing.

There are three in the series so far:

The What on Earth? Wallbook: From the Big Bang to the Present Day

The What on Earth? Wallbook of Natural History

The What on Earth? Wallbook of Sport
