I love the work of American Modernist Charley Harper, but wasn't familiar with his National Park posters until I spotted them in a frame store a few weeks ago. From Glacier Bay to the Coral Reef, if your travel plans are limited this summer these colorful posters might just be the next best thing.

From the late '70s to early '90s, the National Park Service commissioned Charley Harper to illustrate 10 posters showcasing national parks. Each design features Harper's iconic style and focuses on the biodiversity of the highlighted parks.
