National Parks are the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.— Wallace Stegner
FOUR 3-PACKS, TWELVE PARKS
The National Parks collection is a collaboration between Field Notes and the artists of The Fifty-nine Parks Print series (You can learn more about that project here).
Each book features a brief history of the park on its inside back cover, a spot for the official National Park Passport Stamp on the inside front cover, and 48 pages of premium Finch Opaque paper marked with a 3/16" graph to record your plans, routes, notes, and memories.
The best part: Five percent of each purchase is donated directly to the National Parks Service, to help preserve and expand on our nation’s best idea.
The covers are printed using a custom, five-color process which begins with under-printing white ink. This allowed the color of the paper to be incorporated into the artwork. The illustrative styles, the printing process, and even the copper staples are all intentional, meant to recall the heritage and archival promotional materials and publications of the National Park System.
