Around the World in 125 Years

For generations, National Geographic has captivated and educated with its epic photographs from all corners of the planet, combining travel, portraiture, costume, and conservation.

Now, adapted from Taschen’s ‘Around the World in 125 Years,’ two volumes have been rereleased in XL format. In Europe and Asia & Oceania, readers will discover Japan’s naked festival, witness the eruption of Surtsey in Iceland, take in the majesty of the Taj Mahal, and take a dip in the serene blue waters of the Greek Islands.
