The dtv-Atlas series started in 1964 with its bestselling dtv-Atlas World History. It has been widely acclaimed for its unique way of highlighting the topics of each volume in separate units, combining vivid graphics on the left-hand pages with concisely written explanations on the right.

The subject areas covered by the dtv-Atlas series range from history to natural sciences, from architecture to music, from philosophy to health. dtv-Atlases are designed to be reference books useful for both experts and curious readers. The series is being regularly extended, and each Atlas is revised and updated upon republication. A list of all dtv-Atlases, including the number of editions and copies sold, is available.
