ABOUT THE GIANT STEP DESIGN GREAT PLACES LINE OF ART PRINTS
Our Great Places series are intended to pay homage to the Works Progress Administration (WPA)-style prints of the 1930’s and 1940’s. This initiative was one of our nation’s first publicly-supported arts initiatives and originally included silkscreen, lithograph, and woodcut posters. Many featured National Parks, events, public lands, and other quintessential American themes. This style is now a favorite among graphic artists due to its challenging design style, understated simplicity and a traditionally limited color palette. The Library of Congress curates the entire collection; you can browse the works of the original artists and read more about this fascinating program the and the Library of Congress’s website.
This series is printed on museum-quality, thick and durable matte paper. The prints are produced on demand (each order is custom made) by our print facility partners in Charlotte, North Carolina. As such, customers can expect prints to ship within 10 days of the order being placed, but usually much faster depending on capacity and demand.
