I wouldn't. Gonna try to treat it like some do with gig posters. I'm only buying prints for the parks I've been to. Plus I'm a poor. No way I could afford a sub with 59 prints

Any sub that includes 59 prints would be way too pricey for me. No way.

Hopefully an artist lineup today, at the very least. Maybe launch the site too?
So it goes...

:iagree:

Even thinking about buying one for each park I've been to makes my wallet hurt. I'm really excited for this series, though.

So far both of the 2 prints they have shown have had 2 color ways. There will be way more than 59 prints in this series if you include the variants. Definitely going to have to pick and choose.

Just got the code to the site! I'm not gonna post it here to encourage everyone to repost the image on insta and get it that way.

Looks like all the prints are $40 each. You can only buy the Grand Teton National Park print right now, all other single prints are TBA.

There is a print membership for $500. Gives you credits to use in shop on prints you want, exclusive print, early access to new prints, only 30 spots available.


Edit: It seems all the prints are open editions. Don't see edition size on the one print available. 18 x 24.

From the site:

"A $500 membership gets you early access to new releases. It also gets you credits to the shop so you can pick only the prints you love the most!
Here's what you get for being a member:
$550 credit to the shop (that's $50 in free shop credit!)
One free limited edition poster for joining ($100 value)
Early access to every future release in 2016 — that means you'll get first dibs on new limited edition prints (large format, 24"x32"!), the open edition 18"x24" prints, and other releases
Prints from artists like Daniel Danger, Landland, Erica Williams, Tom Whalen, Dan McCarthy, Eric Nyffeler, Justin Santora and many more! "

We're stoked to introduce The 59 Parks Print Series! Over the next year we'll be releasing prints that celebrate each of our National Parks. Every park will receive a screen printed poster made artists like Daniel Danger, Landland, Erica Williams, Tom Whalen, Dan McCarthy, Eric Nyffeler, and Justin Santora. This series is for parks enthusiasts and printmaking fans alike!

A Fresh Take on Parks Posters
We've always admired the WPA posters from the 1930's. We've even found tons of inspiration from that era but this series isn't a throwback. Part of how that's achieved is by embracing a wide range of visual styles. The most exciting aspect of these posters is having 59 different artists contribute to the series! Most poster series look like they've been beautifully illustrated by the same hand. We're embracing the eclectic. Lastly, every poster in the series is screen printed in the USA — no laser printers here.

Future Releases
We'll be releasing posters for each of the 59 National Parks. Each park will have an 18"x24" open edition poster made by a prominent contemporary poster artists. Some parks will also have an open edition variant featuring a different time of day or a different season. Some parks may even receive a limited edition large format poster (24"x32")! This approach allows us to incorporate some level of collectability without being totally exclusive.
