A lot of us grew up with stacks of yellow National Geographic magazines around, their iconic shape and consistently wonderful photography giving us glimpses of the world, near and far. Often the magazines include fold-out maps and excellent infographics. But did you know that the magazine pretty much invented the formula? Their infographics have been going back for more than 128 years. Now National Geographic has teamed up with Taschen to publish a beautifully rich collection of these graphics, including many you’ll recognize, and many you’ve probably missed. An epic journey broken down into seven sections:¬†History, The Planet, Being Human, Animal World, World of Plants, Science & Technology, and Space. We can’t wait to get a copy.
