If you are interested in photos, get this book.
Beside that, the book is nice to read and price is definitely affordable.
The cover picture, alone, is probably one of the most memorable photographs of the 20th century and has been reprinted many times in books and magazines worldwide. Most of the remaining photographs are less well-known outside of the original magazines. A pocket-sized book, for that is what it essentially is, is simply too small to do full justice to the many highly-skilled photographers who travelled to some of the world's remotest, and in some instances dangerous, locations to take the many pictures within.
National Geographic Magazine was a magazine I would occasionally read at school. I could not then afford to buy it as an 11- or 12-year old but one of my teachers did buy it and the copies were later very obligingly donated to the school library. At the time, I had no interest in photography - that was to follow some years later when I could afford to buy a 20-year-old second-hand folding camera that lasted until I could afford something more modern - but I did have an interest in geography and the world and I would probably be able only to read a single article in the time available during a lunch break.
Some years later, I would buy a copy if it contained an article of interest, but not regularly. I also did have a 1-year subscription that was not renewed as finding the time to read them was a problem.Read more ›
the book is very small, but valuable.
I advise to buy a larger version as the impact of images will be stronger.
