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.
"Kaart van de Sandwich Eilanden"
Published by Baarfel, 1787
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This superior reproduction of the first charting of the Sandwich Islands (the Hawaiian Islands), as performed by Captain James Cook, assisted by young William Bligh (later of H.M.S. Bounty fame), was published by Baarfel, of Amsterdam, in the Dutch edition of Cook's Third Voyage.
The original English edition of 1784 was quickly re-engraved and reprinted by both the French and the Dutch, as the discovery of the Sandwich Islands - a major island chain in the empty North Pacific - was monumental news at the time.
The inset map is of Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook met his untimely death on February 14, 1779.
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.
