Mammoth Cave National Park PosterHike and Draw
Imagine stepping into total darkness with nothing but a dimly lit lantern. That's exactly what Stephan Bishop did in the mid-19th century when he set out to explore Mammoth Cave, the world's longest cave system known to man. This design showcases that moment in time and celebrates the history of explorers who began a rich tradition of cave discovery. Bishop was a former slave who gave famous cave tours and accurately mapped out 16 km of passageways from mere memory.
Designed in Mammoth Cave
The poster is one of 59 prints we are making on our National Park Quest, an artistic journey to showcase the parks through a creative lens.
We designed this poster while discovering Mammoth Cave National Park in April 2016, and its composition was inspired by cave tours, stories from rangers, as well as the museum within the park's visitor center. The imagery was literally crafted in the heart of the park while exploring a place of mystery and wonder. We camped at night, splitting our days between creation and hiking.
Individually Hand Printed
Printed on heavyweight archival matte paper, the colors are rich and painterly. Upon your order, your poster is individually hand printed by our U.S. based partner who will send your print carefully packaged in a tube made of recycled materials. In celebration of the National Park Service's centennial, we are donating 10% of profit from this poster to the Friends of Mammoth Cave.
