I'm surprised I haven't seen any comments on the lack of supplements again, for 2017. Maps are a big part of geography and there have been several changes that haven't been addressed as supplements…Continue

I have the Sept. 1 version. I was wondering, what is the difference between it and the Aug. 28 version besides the date showing in the title area? On internet views, I don't see any other differences…Continue

Illustrations in NGM in 1920s
7 Replies

In the 1920s magazines as an example, black and white photos are usually called illustrations.  But some were called engravings.  I don't see much difference in them.  Does anybody know why some were…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 on 1 side, and Eurasia, Africa, and Australia on the other. Hopefully, they will update continental maps this year too.Harold W.See More

"Agree.  I just received the January 2018 issue and no loose supplement.  But normally, they never have had them in January.  Keep hoping they get the message! Harold "

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.
