Parks: United States National Park Service Maps from the Collection of Brian Kelley

By Brian Kelley and Edited by Jesse Reed, Hamish Smyth

Parks is a collection of over 300 United States national park maps, ephemera, and brochures spanning over 100 years. Part of an ongoing project, photographer Brian Kelley collects oft-overlooked objects within the Parks Service, creating a compelling visual history of America’s national parks and evolving graphic design styles culminating in Massimo Vignelli’s iconic design system, the Unigrid.
