As you’ve probably noticed from our 60 parks in 60 days
series, Team MNN is all about America’s park system — from iconic grand dames
to historic, highly trafficked urban green spaces
to oft-overlooked treasures
. And as I alluded to in my post on Pendleton’s National Park blankets
, sometimes actually visiting the great outdoors just isn’t enough, and many interior design-savvy wilderness lovers long to bring the experience (minus bug bites and blistered feet) home with them in some way or another.
If draping your davenport with the historic markings and colors of Yosemite and Yellowstone isn’t quite your style and you’re after something a bit more Modernist, look no further than Charley Harper
’s series of National Park posters. Like Lauren Zerby over at Re-Nest
, I’m familiar with the work of the beloved, nature-loving illustrator but had no clue Harper, who sadly passed away in 2007, had tackled national parks as a subject.
Check ‘em all out over at the Cincinnati Art Museum’s online shop
where there are a few other nature-themed Harper prints for sale, including the absolutely lovely “Biodiversity in the Burbs
.” And for more Harper goodness, take a moment to peruse Fishs Eddy’s new Todd Oldham-designed dishware collection
. Do you have a favorite Harper print that's not part of the National Park poster series?
