not to be confused with National Geographic’s own tumblr, Vintage National Geographic instead features scanned in pages from vintage copies of National Geographic going back to the 1800’s. you’ll recognise that familiar halftone printing look that jumps off these old clippings, and it’s almost like you can smell the pile of old magazines that you used to page through at grandma’s house.
i have a stack of these old mags too, i wish there was some way to preserve them for all the internet to see – much like the online Life archives? that would be cool. they even have the first page of the first issue of National Geographic dating back to 1888.
