1948 Rocky Mountain National Park

Size Guide

By: Richardson Rome

Date: 1948 (published) Denver, Colorado

Dimensions: 16 x 20 inches (40.6 x 50.8 centimeters)

This wonderfully vivid fine print reproduction map was originally printed by Richardson Rome within his own print shop in Estes Park. Renowned for his etchings of famous landmarks throughout the United States. However, he also created a small number of maps of the Rocky Mountain National Park, with all the various locales throughout the park painstakingly detailed.

Inset within the map is artistically rendered Grand Lake, as well as the “Beautiful Dream Lake”. The artist’s love and care for the locale is well-apparent with the humor he puts into every nook and cranny. Look to the top of the map for a “Wet Cloud Waiting for a Picnic” or to the middle for the “Most Perfect Glacial Moraine in the World”. The love that the artist had for the Rocky Mountain National Park leaps off of the page.
