Andreanof Islands By Steven Garcia, Joel Anderson, 2021
- Andreanof Islands
Now here is a place that few get the chance to explore! The Andreanof Islands are a group of islands in the Aleutian Islands in southwestern Alaska, just off the coast but only accessible by boat or airplane. They were named for the Russian navigator, Andreyan (Hadrian) Tolstykh, who was the first European to explore the islands in 1761. The islands have a strong historical significance, as there were several United States military bases on the islands during and after World War II. The bases on Adak were enlarged and made permanent after the war, but were closed in 1995 following the end of the Cold War. Anderson Design Group has rendered this classic World Travel poster design in the tradition of the Golden Age of Poster Art. This retro-styled rendering will look great as an art print, notecard, postcard, metal sign, canvas, or mini canvas. To learn more about the islands, visit the official website for the Alaska Guide.
