Book consists of interesting facts about Antarctica. Each text is accompanied by an illustration and assigned to a specific location. Usual pagination is replaced by geographic latitude. It begins at Northernmost location and ends at South Pole. The majority of pages are empty (except coordinates), representing ice covered areas. Map at the beginning serves as a table of content. Book aims to embrace Antarctica as a land of unknown with isolated human habitats devoted to reserch it.
