I've posted a photo album here showing the covers, 6 of which are completely different than the American edition of NGM. All 12 show the guest editor's name prominently displayed.
an excerpt from the press release about the project below:
Twelve notable British figures will guest edit the UK issue of the much-loved magazine in 2018
World’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes edits the January issue
Dame Ellen MacArthur, Sir Mo Farah, Lily Cole, Archie Panjabi, Katie Piper, Dr Maria Balshaw CBE and Brian Cox to lead issues later in the year
The 2018 project will mark the 130th anniversary of the world’s most read magazine, National Geographic

You are really going to town there, Scott. :-)
These are really great. I especially like the one from March with Brian Cox.
Talk about gettin' in the weeds!
Big bites Scott!
Mel, I meant to post this in December or January! LOL ~ the cover scans are from my personal collection.
Tom, that one's my favorite cover too, along with Jan + Nov.
Thank you for sharing Scott. So is that to say the stories in non UK editions will be different as well? Or are they the same stories but simply edited differently (different choice of images, different words in the stories etc?).
Excuse my ignorance.
The main articles were the same but these 2018 UK versions featured some different department features, specific to the UK-guest editor, including a guest editor letter, etc.
Cool, thank you for the info Scott! :)
