Canvas

All canvas artwork is printed exclusively on 100% premium cotton canvas using archival inks. Combined with a patented non-toxic coating that water and UV proofs them, every Giclée is guaranteed to last over 100 years.  When you frame these prints, they do not need to be framed behind glass, making them ideal for any room in your home.

 

Canvas for Gallery Wrap 

When you purchase Canvas prepared to be gallery wrapped, we add a 2½” mirrored border (on all sides) which allows you to have a stretcher bar frame made up to 2” deep. The mirrored borders may throw you off, but that border is designed to be seen on the side of the stretcher bar frame. This ensures that the complete image is shown on the face of the frame. Gallery wraps are ideal for large prints.

Maui, Hawaiian Islands

Published by United States Government, 1885

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This beautifully-reproduced map of Maui was originally surveyed by W. D. Alexander, Surveyor General to Queen Liliuokalani in 1885, prior to her overthrow. Providing valuable ownership information, this map is color-coded and illustrates all the government lands in green and the former Crown lands in yellow.

The names of companies and individuals holding title to larger portions of land are also noted on the map.

It states that the primary triangulation was by W.D. Alexander and S.E. Bishop, while the boundaries and topography were by W.D. Alexander, C.J. Lyons, M.D. Monsarrat, F.S. Dodge, S.E. Bishop, E.D. Baldwin and W.R. Lawrence. Credit for the finished map is given to F.S. Dodge.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
