Graphic illustrations of 75 US National Parks, Monuments, etc, by various illustrators through the Creative Action Network. Nice browsing book.

I want to visit every place showcased in this book. With the exception of one glaring typo, this is excellent light, inspirational reading. Next on my list is to check out the Creative Action Network website.

I liked the book. I wish the print was larger and that there was an index by states.
