Weird landmarks can generate an unusual power when traveling solo, as a couple or with family and friends. Other monuments commemorate an important event or celebrate an exceptional life, while some are designed to amaze us.
For our design inspiration, UK-based studio Design by House created their most recent compilation of 9 Landmarque prints of the world’s most inspiring monuments in full color and A2 size which can be displayed as a wall art portrait. In order to avoid color from fading, the series were printed out using a lightfast ink in 200 gsm Chromomatt Club paper stock. Every piece were signed and dated together with a stamp of authenticity.
If your like most photographers, you don’t leave home without your camera when you travel. So charge your digital camera batteries prior to traveling to these monuments for a family vacation or honeymoon adventure to keep those memories captured in your long journey with travel photography. Remember to pack light and pack smart.
