The Acadia National Park Poster measures 13" x 19" and is an original work by Robert Decker. This WPA travel poster is based on a photograph he took on a 10,000 mile cross-country road trip in 1977. It features the iconic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, which is located at the southern-most part of Acadia National Park. The posters are printed on "Conservation," a 100% recycled, domestically produced (80 lb.) paper stock with soy-based inks. From start to finish, each WPA travel poster is 100% American Made.
About Acadia National Park
Early supporters of Acadia National Park donated land to preserve and protect the diverse landscape of the rugged Maine coast. Established in 1916, the park features tide pools, wetlands, boreal forests, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. Today, visitors come to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, enjoy freshwater and saltwater activities — and take in the spectacular scenery.

Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."
By creating these iconic images, I hope to help generate awareness — not only of the grandeur of these amazing places — but also for the need of continued protection and operation of the parks. I think that everyone — now and in the future — should have a chance to enjoy the often-fascinating and always awe-inspiring majesty of our National Parks.
