For over a century, the National Parks Service has protected and promoted some of the most beautiful natural features of our great nation. And while the best way to experience them is certainly to visit, the years have also brought about hundreds of beautiful pieces of artwork featured in everything from brochures to posters and more. Now, Standards Manual has teamed up with photographer Brian Kelley to collect over 300 of these pieces in their Parks coffee table book.
Subtitled From Pictures To Words: Persuasion and the National Parks, this magnificent tome is loaded from cover to cover with beautiful artwork — including topographical maps, advertisements, and plenty of documentation explaining the history and significance therein. The book even has examples of Massimo Vignelli’s fabled Unigrid System — originally introduced back in 1977. With a ship date set for October, you can preorder this beautiful book now for $55.
