Explore the majesty of the National Parks through the eyes of contemporary artists.
This beautiful art book displays the unique beauty of each U.S. National Park as captured by the 59Parks project which commissions original art from a range of contemporary artists.
The 59Parks project challenged the country's most acclaimed contemporary artists and designers to create original posters that celebrate the unique beauty of each of the now 62 parks in the U.S. National Park system. The wildly successful poster art is now available as a collection for the first time in this gorgeous art book.
Inspired by classic W.P.A. posters of the 1930s, each poster is a unique and original reflection of the talent and perspective of the contemporary artist who created it, resulting in a one-of-a-kind tribute to the majesty of the national parks.
