The young, green-eyed, shawl covered Pakistani girl in a refugee camp on the cover of National Geographic was a defining moment for both the publication and photography as an art form.
Known for being the worlds most popular discovery, travel and painstakingly beautiful source for photographs and content, National Geographic may make the same impact once more with their most recent endeavor. The publication teamed up with international (and mostly art) publishing house, Taschen, to give us the ultimate photography coffee book, Around the World in 125 Years.
This limited edition, expensive, three-volume journey into our planet and its people showcases images from jaguars on a Mexican canoe to Lebanon’s modern streets in the 1950s. The three volumes are broken down by area.
If you’re a fan of the natural world, or want to treat yourself to something meaningful, get yourself a copy.
