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.

"Hawaii"

Published by Bormay & Co., 1899

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This reproduction of the original woodblock engraving entitled "Hawaii" was first published in 1899 by Bormay & Co. of New York and then widely distributed in Harper's Weekly magazine. It was based upon the survey performed by S.M. Kanakanui with annotations by Caspar Whitney.

Of interest are the textual details regarding the geographical conditions of the land including agricultural information about sugarcane and coffee planting. Also of note are the references to the pioneer plantations, rainfall, grazing animals and government lands.

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.
