Vintage National Park Posters

National parks are promoted in several different ways. According to Rangerdoug.com, between 1935 and 1943 the Works Project Administration, known as WPA, created thousands of posters to endorse education, travel and the arts. Most of these posters didn’t survive through the test of time.

Ranger Doug has faithfully reproduced the WPA National Park posters and continues to create unique pieces for the parks. These particular posters appeal to me, because something that is vintage and thought to be lost was found and restored beautifully.

The great thing about these posters, which feature a great variety of the U.S. National Parks, is you can purchase them from Ranger Doug’s website.

If you’ve visited any of the parks it is incredibly neat to look through the posters and find the one’s you’ve been to. It evoked memories I’ll never forget when I saw the famous monuments of each national park.
