I am curious to know, what is the largest work that has been handled using LaTeX? Those with the most number of pages are the obvious choices. But perhaps we will also want to consider to ones with most number of illustrations.
Here are a few toppers that I could find.
- TikZ (PGD) Manual, 1161 pages, impressive number of graphics.
- Introduction to Algorithms by Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, and Clifford Stein, 1312 pages, many line drawings.
- Light and Matter by Ben Crowell, 1032 page, many line drawings and photos.
If possible, please answer in elaboration, with the related stories, motivations, obstacles, and preferably links.
