Description

A never-before-seen collection of United States National Park Service maps

This book brings togethere a collection of over 400 maps produced by the United States National Park Service from 1910 to today. Photographer Brian Kelley has impulsively archived the rarely seen treasures over the past three years, uncovering a design portfolio with little to no credit to their respective designers. The growing collection displays a progressive design approach, from more typographic-driven covers, to the proliferation of duotone print production, culminating in the Unigrid system developed by Italian designer Massimo Vignelli in the 1970s.

Brian Kelley received his BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts. Kelley's work resists the hurried march of consumerist modernity, seeking to halt the cyclical emptiness of our material lives to capture a sense of culture at 'the end of history'. Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth are graphic designers and partners at the design office, Order, in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to Order, they also operate Standards Manual, an independent publishing imprint focused on the preservation of graphic design history.
