Product description:



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.

"Hawaiian Group or Sandwich Islands"

Published by J.H. Colton & Co., 1855

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superior reproduction of the classic map "Hawaiian Group or Sandwich Islands" was originally published by J. H. Colton & New York. Colton, who published his first atlas in 1855, was an immediate commercial success, and his maps, although once easy to obtain, have become increasingly scarce and inevitably more expensive.

This map was published during the era of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The engraved lines, which represent the near-shore ocean depths, were a stylistic feature of mid-nineteenth century cartography.

Insets of Samoa, Tonga, Feejee (sic) Islands, Galapagos, Marquesas, Society Islands and New Zealand complete this fine mapping of the Hawaiian Islands.

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.
