James Niehues - The Man Behind the Maps Book Release
If you grew up in or around ski resorts, you have undoubtedly seen James Niehues’ work thousands and thousands of times. For over 30 years, he has painted over 200 resort maps, guiding skiers and snowboarders to deep pow and fresh groomers, to the best places to après.
James’ ability to flatten a three-dimensional image is unparalleled. He may be the best at it on the planet. His paintings are artistically unmatched and detailed. But what sets him apart is his ability to create a perspective of a mountain that does not exist yet, but feels 100% right. His style harkens back to the early cartographers in the 1500s through late 1800s.
Verde is excited to be working with James and his team to launch a new elegant coffee table book, The Man Behind the Maps: Legendary Ski Artist James Niehues, a dream-come-true realization of his life's work. The visually stunning book is guaranteed to trigger memories of epic ski trips and spark lively dinner conversations - truly one of the best gifts you could give any skier or snowboarder this upcoming winter season! The book is available for pre-order now at www.jamesniehues.com.
