IGY "Planet Earth" Posters and Booklet

As part of its program of educational outreach, the NAS IGY committee in 1958 put together a booklet providing a brief introduction to the earth and environmental sciences. The booklet was organized around six posters by artist Herbert Danska, each devoted to an area of geophysics, created expressly for the outreach project. We reproduce booklet and the six posters here - just click on the thumbnails below to see the full-size poster images on the web; or click the hyperlink for the higher resolution image for printing (note: higher resolution image may take longer to download on slower connection speeds).  The booklet is a 13MB PDF file and may take longer to download over slower connections.
