Photography and design by John & Cynthia Orcutt and Cam Held

The artwork for these postcards was inspired by posters developed for the National Park System during the 1935-1943 WPA Federal Art Project.  Each poster featured a 8-12 color silkscreen of a significant landscape a National Park, illustrated alongside writing, aimed to encourage visitation of that Park.  The incredible scenery found at each of the MH&T’s four huts, Poplar Falls Hut, Flagstaff Lake Hut, Grand Falls Hut and Stratton Brook Hut, are illustrated on these postcards using color separations (produced using Adobe Illustrator) of actual photographs made by John Orcutt and Cam Held at each Hut.

These are available for purchase ($1 each) at the Schoolhouse Gallery and Maine Huts & Trails’ huts and office.
