Guinness World Records 2016

(Relaxnews) – On Thursday, August 27, the world’s undisputed record-keeper and archive of history fetes its 60th anniversary.

In addition to the release of the 60th edition of the book next month, Guinness has been building up to the milestone with a special video series featuring some of the biggest — figuratively and literally — records set, such as the tallest man, tallest dog, fastest man and longest fingernails.

A micro ‘Spotlight Series‘ site also features some of the most iconic record-holders such as Usain Bolt, One Direction and Mo Farah.

Since 1955, Guinness has sold more than 134 million copies of the book, in 21 languages, across
100 countries.

The Guinness World Records 2016 edition will be released in the US September 1 and retails for $28.95.
