"A new book is adding to the mix, reinventing what helped bring our national parks to vivid, rugged life in the 1930s and onward: the iconic parks poster. 'See America' from Chronicle Books is a colorful homage from artists to the country's 75 national parks and sites."

Some of these NEW posters are really stunning (Olympic, Allegheny, Muir Woods, Big Bend, Blue Ridge, Pony Express Trail, Golden Gate, Big Sur, Everglades, Niagara, M.L.K.). Some are unappealingly colorless, which completely defeats the purpose of advertising posters (Yellowstone!, Lincoln Memorial, Denali, Carlsbad, Joshua Tree, Monument Valley, New River Gorge, Harriet Tubman). Some are just plain silly, childish, or cartoony (Chaco, Rocky Mtn., Katmai, Mt.Rushmore, Arches, Death Valley, Isle Royale, Theo.Roosevelt, Cape Cod, Appalachian Trail, San Antonio Missions,). Some parks (Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty, Saguaro) show two or four posters on one page, so they are really tiny, only one of which is worth printing.
But the book is worth having as a reference so I don't accidently buy a poster I won't like. Forewarned is forearmed.
I recommend this book and I plan to give it as a holiday gift.
Bottom line - it's a great buy. I can't wait to see what these folks comes up with next!
It's gorgeous and does an amazing job of capturing the spirit of the National Parks. I love the decision the authors made to order the parks chronologically based on when they were established - this really helps to convey their beauty while also educating the reader on their rich history.
I can't say enough good things about how cool this book is.
Ps. this makes an awesome coffee table book and would be a great gift for anyone!
