What has been claimed to be the world's largest book has been published. It's 21,540 pages long.

The book in question is an "all-in-one" edition of the manga comic One Piece, which at time of writing consists of 102 single volumes. The "all-in-one" edition is the work of Greek-Belgian artist Ilan Manouach, who has created 50 copies as an artwork called ONEPIECE (without the space because his version is just one long book), and says it is: "the materialization of an ecosystem saturated by media." All 50 copies have been sold already, selling for 1,900 each.

What about "Googolplex Written Out" by Wolfgang Nitsche? I'm fairly sure that was mentioned on Qi somewhere.

I think ONEPIECE is the largest book in the sense the it is "all-in-one". If you look at the pictures of it, it is one very long book, combining all the volumes, which would be impossible to do with Googolplex Written Out - you can only get that in individual volumes.

The human genome in book form, as seen in the Wellcome Collection on a QI meet up.

What does it say about me that I didn't actually remember that until you posted the picture, but do remember the antique Japanese sex toy set in minute detail?

No comment required, methinks.
