Synopsis: Positioned as a follow-up to the bestselling National Geographic 125 Years, National Geographic The Covers is the illustrated history of National Geographic's iconic, beloved, and ground-breaking covers, bringing together for the first time more than a century of images that have transformed our understanding of the world. NG The Covers is the definitive cover collection from the world's most beloved magazine. In the more than 125 years that the magazine has been publishing its famous yellow border, its cover stories have opened our eyes to a richly varied world and taken us to places we only dream of visiting: deep into the rainforest, miles below the surface of the ocean, and into the farthest reaches of the universe. Organised by decade, the covers chart our evolving understanding of the world, the unfolding of world political events, record amazing discoveries that would literally rewrite history, and the enduring beauty of our natural world. Captured by some of the most gifted and innovative photographers, these covers tell a fascinating story of the last 125 years, one in which we've seen air power advance from the Wright Brothers to the Space Age; Undersea exploration evolve from awkward submersibles to sleek subs that can seemingly effortlessly cruise to the ocean's deepest trench, our natural world evolve from a vast territory of exploitable resources to one needing our understanding and protection. The Covers provides a stirring portrait of a changing world, revealing the captivating stories behind unforgettable images; from the piercing green eyes of the Afghan girl to the haunted, hunted gorillas of the Congo's Virunga Crater. Featuring hundreds of iconic and beloved cover images, NG The Covers is a stunning celebration of the magazine and its enduring influence on our world.
Review: "From Jane Goodall's 1965 cover introducing her work with chimpanzees to the 2013 cover featuring three storm chasers, this book is as much a walk through recent history as it is about beautiful images." --"Twin Cities Pioneer Press"
