Blue was an adventure travel magazine, founded in 1997[1] by Amy Schrier, with David Carson as the original design consultant. Its focus was on global adventure travel.[2] It was published in New York City and is now out of print; its last issue was February–March 2000.[3]

The cover of its first issue was included in a list of the Top 40 magazine covers of the last 40 years by the American Society of Magazine Editors.[4] In 1999 Life magazine listed it in the Best Magazine Photos of the Year.[citation needed] The New York Times characterized it as "not your father's National Geographic."[5]
