This atlas is a good overview of France. My only complaint was that the one region that I was travelling in, Alsace, was sliced right down the middle by the spiral binding. That meant that in the end I tore out the pages I needed and taped them together to create a more usable format. I imagine that is the case with every area of the country. No way to avoid that in an atlas though. I do like how Michelin lays out the regions with some topography as well as roads and town boundaries.
