National Geographic magazine is known for presenting balanced opinions throughout times of conflict, and uphold the ethos of “only what is of a kindly nature is printed about any country or people” in each issue.
As well as printing inspiring and thought-provoking articles, the magazine also often publishes maps - President Franklin D. Roosevelt was an avid collector and his Map Room in the White House was filled with maps from the title.
Since its first issue in October 1888, the magazine has transformed from a text-orientated publication to a factual journal with extensive pictorial content. National Geographic’s most iconic cover was the image of 13 year-old ‘Afghan Girl’ Sharbat Gula, who has been featured on the cover three times since first being photographed by Steve McCurry in 1985.
Now read by more than 60 million people each month, the magazine is published in 34 languages.
