59 Parks Prints Series: A Collection of Amazing Artists Celebrating the 59 National Parks

Two things that make me really happy-National Parks and silk-screened art prints-are finding themselves coming together in a beautiful print series put out by The National Poster Retrospecticus as part of the 59 Park Print Series, which celebrates the beauty and amazingness of the 59 National Parks that the US is home to.

The series will feature 18″x24″ art prints for each of the 59 National Parks, while some parks will also feature variants prints and/or 24"x32" posters in addition. The series already has put out prints for 11 parks, all of which are truly beautiful prints. Additionally, there’s some really talented artists that are contributing to the 59 Park Series. Artists and designers such as John Vogl, Matt Taylor, Thomas Danthony, DKNG, Daniel Danger, Eric Nyffeler, Justin Santora, Dan McCarthy, Telegramme Paper Co., Two Arms Inc., and Brave the Woods have already contributed to the series, and I’m sure many more excellent artists and designers will also contribute to the series moving forward.

As an added bonus, 5% of revenue generated from the print series will be donated to The National Park Service, and the prints will also be archived by the Library of Congress. Awesome.

Head over to the 59 Parks Shop to pick up a print or some other really cool goodies.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
