Case Study

The ‘South Polar Times’ was an in-house magazine, produced during the winters of 1902-3 to help keep morale high when the ship ‘Discovery’ was ice-bound. Robert Scott led the 1901-1904 expeditions and Ernest Shackleton edited the magazine.

Max Communications was commissioned to produce high quality digital photographs of the entire collection at the premises of the Royal Geographical Society. This included zoological diagrams, charts, maps and scientific accounts.
