Map Supplement

I think it is a shame that the April 2022 National Geographic issue didn't come with a map supplement of UKRAINE and its neighbors.  (Unless they are planning one in May.)  Gilbert Grosvenor would…Continue

Surprise! I just received my March  issue and it finally has a supplement!  And it also is red lettered on the spine: "Poster: Bird Migrations". It is double-sided with bird migration in the Americas…Continue

"Precisely, I 100% agree. I love spreading their maps out on the table and taking my time examining and reading them.  Say, which maps are you missing? I'm surprised....."

"Thanks, Scott. I think I saw most of those, but I still prefer a paper map in front of me where I can take my time looking at it. The Internet has its value too where you can copy or save. But you still can't beat National Geographic maps!…"

"Harold,  I know that you wanted to see a physical, paper map issued. I agree w/ your concerns and preferences. Along with what Tom already said about online maps being available, it is also the day of the internet . . . we're lucky to…"

"Tom, you may be right. I hope not. The map supplements were as important as articles in the magazine with historical notes, ocean depths, etc. I'm glad I have all mine and told my kids to hold on to them when they inherit them. I check back to…"

Map Supplement

I think it is a shame that the April 2022 National Geographic issue didn't come with a map supplement of UKRAINE and its neighbors.  (Unless they are planning one in May.)  Gilbert Grosvenor would not have been happy about that! He always made it timely to get map supplements out so members could follow current events. Examples are the Apr. 1938 and May 1940 maps of Europe as well as all the maps during the World Wars.. Even maps of Russia were issued to show the breakup of the Soviet Union.I…See More

"Scott, They are both in my map and supplement ALBUM.  You can copy them from there.  It is a continuation of Phil's good work.  He had posted all of them up to the last three (including September's)."

About Me:
Started collecting NGM in 1972. Remember seeing them in school in the 1940s during WWII. Have issues and supplements back to early 1900s. They had great maps and supplements for many years and then stopped - bad mistake! Now see they are starting again. Way overdue for new wall maps of the world, Europe, Asia, and Africa which have all seen boundary changes or new nations since last supplemented.
Favorite National Geographic publication:
National Geographic Magazine with map and/or picture supplements.
