National Geographic: The Covers

Dec 1, 2014

The cover of National Geographic magazine is iconic: you can pick the magazine out on the rack from just a glimpse of that particular shade of yellow. A yellow border so iconic that it acts as National Geographic's print and media logo. Inside that yellow frame is often a photographic glimpse into another world, another person's life and those photographs are what makes Nat Geo the icon it is today. Taylor spoke to Chris Johns, Chief Content Officer and National Geographic photographer, about a new book from the magazine that highlights decades of the magazine's covers. We've compiled a selection of a few of the covers above and you can see more at this link: The Covers: Iconic Photographs, Unforgettable Stories.
