|World's First National Geographic Magazine|
OOPS! I best move on before I sound like I am selling a subscription. Why not? Can't readily think of a much better way to read and learn about this magnificent world we live in!

Anyway, back on track... Today National Geographic is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world focusing on geography, archaeology and natural science, and the promotion of environmental and historical conservation. There are 12 monthly issues of National Geographic per year, plus at least four additional map supplements and when occasion calls for special issues, they are readily created.
Look at its evolution...
The yellow portrait frame appearing on the margins of the magazine became the trademark border around the edge of its cover.
