National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

There is a poster (possibly two) in the April 2020 National Geographic. This is the Earth Day special issue,  Really, it is a dual issue.  My newsstand copy has two of the same five-part foldout poster, back to back in the "Optimist's Guide" portion of issue.

Each identical poster is two-sided with each side having two maps of the earth, one projecting the continents while the other the oceans.

Here is a photo of both opened so you can see each side:

Now is when I really miss Phil and his love of supplements.  Anyway, the front side of the poster is entitled "The Mark of Humanity".  Its land map is called "Changing the Landscape" while the ocean map has the title "Altering the Oceans".

The back side of the poster is alliteratively titled "Protection Priorities".  Its land map is entitle "Saving Critical Landscapes" and the ocean map is called "Protecting the Oceans".
