50 New Titles for Recovering the Classics

April 28, 2015

Recovering The Classics is coming back! We're excited to announce a new partnership with the New York Public Library, and the Digital Public Library of America, to make Recovering The Classics covers freely available on ebooks for schools and libraries across the country! 

We're working now to build the campaign with 50 more titles in the collection, and these new partners will allow us to share them with more people than ever before. While we won't be able to offer the new covers as print-on-demand paperbacks like we did before (at least not yet), they will be available as ebooks, plus the prints, apparel, and other products we sell at www.thecreativeactionnetwork.com

We can't wait to see the new work that comes in, and will be featuring new work in an upcoming gallery show at the New York Public Library later in May (more on that soon!) 

So take a look at the 50 new titles below and then get drawing! Upload your designs when you're ready!

We'd love to tell you about Annie Riker, an artist out of Asheville, North Carolina. She's a surface designer and illustrator who over the years has contributed her national park posters and sticker designs to CAN. This spring her Appalachian Trail design inspired two See America product launches, Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hats! Annie is a former Creative Director for the NPCA and we're so grateful that her national park expertise, love of nature, creative spirit and illustration skills landed her in our community where her work can do so much good. You can see Annie's designs online at CAN and be sure to check out her Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hat project, too, all helping support Earthjustice organization. We know you'll enjoy reading all about Annie!

Know who loves the outdoors and helping good causes as much as we do? Merrell! We enjoyed our first collaboration with them so much we did it again – introducing a new line of trail running shoes inspired by See America posters of our nation's most celebrated through-hikes, the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail.
