See America: A Celebration Of Our National Parks

In 2014 the Creative Action Network partnered with the National Parks Conservation Association to launch a campaign that paid artists and designers to make illustrations of our national landmarks. In part inspired by the old Works Projects Administration of the 1930s and 1940s, a relief program intended to get artists and laborers back into the work force, the collaboration received thousands of submissions. Now, two years after the CAN and NPC started their project, and just in time for the 100th anniversary of our National Parks, the two organizations have collaborated up with Chronicle books to publish their favorite illustrations in a book, See America: A Celebration Of Our National Parks.

This title features 75 works of art, one for each national park and monument across the U.S. Each piece has a distinctive look and style to it that harken back to the old WPA illustrations and reflect the best of what each monument and park has to offer us. Whether you want to use it as inspiration for your next family trip or as a coffee table book to skim through while daydreaming during those particularly long weeks, it’s a perfect grab. You can get it in hardcover for $12. [Purchase]
