NPS Park Posters


The Unknown Artists of the National Parks [link]

I have always had a special affection for the old 1930’s National Park posters. Together with the fabulous deco posters that the railroads used to promote their rail service to the parks, they were one of the earliest things I can remember that made me want to go out and discover what the things represented so romantically in graphic form actually looked like.

My ideal vacation would be to spend a year going from park to park, and staying for as long as I needed to have finally discovered each one for myself and absorb each park’s unique atmosphere… mebbe someday…
