The June 2015 issue of Canadian Geographic features a cover story on the 100 Greatest Explorers.
Here is what editor Aaron Kylie has to say about the issue:
“Explorers and exploration are a big deal for our readership, however there are not a lot of universally well known modern Canadian explorers. So with this cover, art director Javier Frutos played up a largely graphical treatment with a prominent main cover line with a simple direct sub-line. He also used a row of small images of select explorers, inspired from a December 2004 Canadian Geographic cover that had done particularly well at newsstand.”
