Chicago Architecture "Periodic Table" Icon Poster - Limited Edition
This double-sided, 24 x 36-inch poster gathers 50 of the most significant Chicago buildings, parks and events together—and does it so cleverly, it's almost scientific! In celebration of CAF's 50th anniversary, we also offer a very limited quantity of a version that's signed by Rick Valicenti of Thirst Design.
On the front, exclusive icons perfectly capture the most historic and innovative Chicago landmarks, from the Water Tower to Marina City to Millennium Park. In our homage to chemistry’s Periodic Table, each building is grouped by its use, era, architect and style. The back of the poster pairs all 50 icons with full-color photography of the buildings they represent.
