The World Factbook is privileged to work with a team of highly talented graphic designers and cartographers who belong to the CIA's Directorate of Intelligence career service. Each year, The World Factbook cover design is assigned to a new graphic designer who is asked to provide a unique and innovative visual concept that captures the spirit of The World Factbook. The Gallery of Covers displays the evolution and diversity of our cover designs since 1981.

Information about obtaining printed copies of The World Factbook can be found on the Purchasing page.
