I want to travel to Mars. It ain’t that far away, and depending on your science-fiction author of choice there’s either gold, land, intelligent life, or something equally dope there. Ron Guyatt has put together these travel posters, and they have served to stoke my yearning. I’m ready! for the million-year picnic.
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.
