When National Geographic magazine debuted in 1888, it reflected the interests of its small, mostly professional, readership. The focus then was on scholarly articles such as “Geographic Methods in Geologic Investigation” and less on photos between its conservative brown covers.

Now, after more than a century of delivering unforgettable images and text, National Geographic is journalism’s most recognized name in exploration and discovery, bringing the wonders of the world to some 60 million people each month.

With comprehensive, relevant articles and legendary photographs and maps, the iconic magazine documents life on our planet and beyond, interpreting the world through the lens of personal experience:

  • Jane Goodall’s encounters with chimpanzees in Tanzania;
  • Hiram Bingham’s expedition into Machu Picchu in 1911;
  • Robert Ballard’s 1985 discovery of the Titanic on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean;
  • And many more examples
