Tour the landmarks of Mars in these vintage travel posters
Mars tourism is still a long ways off, but it’s not hard to imagine that someday, tourists will visit the natural geological landmarks of Mars much like they tour the Grand Canyon. And every great tourist destination needs a retro travel poster to entice visitors.
Ron Guyatt, who also created beautifully detailed maps of Westeros and Jurassic Park, sells these travel prints, based on Mars’ Seven Sisters caves on Arsia Mons, the volcano Olympus Mons, and Valles Marineris. In his store, Guyatt says these are part of a series depicting landmarks in our solar system, so with luck, we’ll see more travel posters from Mars and beyond.
