Single Yellow Line

A plug for a fantastic magazine, National Geographic, which arrives in the letterbox twelve times a year for the genuinely bargain price of £19 annually. NG is that rare thing, an American magazine that has both fantastic photos - the reproduction quality is second to none - and erudite and well-written articles. The maps and graphics are superlative. The January 2010 issue for instance has stunningly beautiful photos of the Hebrides (above), and of clownfish, and a fascinating article about 'bionic' prostheses. Highly recommended. And still with its distinctive yellow border on the cover.
