Just because you and your kids may not have been to one of our country’s breathtaking national parks doesn’t mean you can’t experience some of it in an analog fashion. The new book “Parks – From Pictures To Words: Persuasion and the National Parks” covers the artwork from the National Parks Service. Standards Manual partnered with photographer Brian Kelley to assemble artwork from brochures, posters, maps, etc., and there are 300 examples found between the covers of this big, yellow coffee table book. There are also detailed topographical maps and documents, as well as information about origins, use, and significance of the artwork. It’s a unique book that should remind you that most of what’s worth experiencing isn’t on a screen.

We demand a lot from our shirts, which is why we like the shirts that come from Batch. Batch makes shirts that are durable, stylish, and well-built (by hand!)–without the hefty price tag. Case in point: Batch’s Specialist Utility Shirt. Equal parts rugged yet refined and stylish yet durable, this shirt expertly balances simplicity, detail and function with its Giza cotton construction, oversized chest pockets with side expansion and spread collar. Those same details make it great with jeans or worn open over your favorite tee. Dress better with Batch.
