Artist Statement

"This beautiful Golden Gate NRA print is a unique tribute to the WPA posters that were created in the 1930?s and 1940?s. The WPA posters were originally constructed as a government initiative to generate interest in the national parks and improve park attendance. As we are approaching the centennial anniversary of the National Parks System, we have designed WPA travel posters and postcards featuring all 59 national parks to celebrate America?s diverse homeland and to encourage you to reflect on the rich history and beauty that each national park has to offer. We hope to inspire you to find your park and travel to the stunning landscapes which make America so great. The park chronicles 200 years of history from Native American culture, Spanish Empire frontier, the Gold Rush, evolution of American coastal fortifications and growth of urban San Francisco. Comprised of 19 separate ecosystems and home to 1,273 plant/animal species, the park has hundreds of ways to recreate including horseback riding, ranger-led programs, bicycling, hiking and walking your dog." - Ike Loveland

Isaac and his wife Emily run a small at home print shop Purple Moose Basics who specializes in WPA National Park Posters. We love to spend time outdoors and frequenting as many National Parks as possible!

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
