   Largest Book-world record set by Ayman Trawi

 BEIRUT, Lebanon-- An enlarged replica (304 pages that are 3.85 meters wide and 2.77 meters tall, weighing in at 1,060 kilograms) of Ayman Trawi's national bestselling photography book "Beirut's Memory,"which depicts the changing face of the capital between 1991 and 2002, sets the world record for the  Largest Book.
  
 The book is an enlarged replica of Ayman Trawi's national bestselling photography book "Beirut's Memory," which depicts the changing face of the capital between 1991 and 2002 through a collection of "before and after" photos of key downtown reconstruction sites.

  
 Trawi and his landmark book are set to travel to multiple destinations around the world in the upcoming year, with one of the first stops being at the Louvre museum in Paris, France.

 
  Tourism Ministry General Director Nada Sardouk saw the value of the book not so much in its size, but in its ability to spark interest in Lebanon by generating positive publicity for the country. "It's not only about the world's largest book, it's also about the reconstruction, and if that gets people talking about Beirut.

  
 The last book to break the Guinness World Record was published in 1976 in Denver, Colorado, in the United States, under the title of "The Super Book," which measured 3.07 meters wide and 2.74 meters tall with 252.6 kilograms of weight spread over 300 pages.
