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.

"Oahu - Hawaiian Islands"

Published by United States Government, 1881

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

Originally printed for a Hawaiian government survey, this superior reproduction of an early map of Oahu was published in the Fourth Annual Report, United States Geological Survey in 1881, and reproduced by permission of the Director of U.S. Geological Surveys.

It states that is was produced "from trigonometrical surveys by W.D. Alexander, C.J. Lyons, J.F. Brown, M.D. Monsarrat and William Webster." Credit for the finished map is given to Richard Covington.

This map is a reduction of the wall map surveyed by W.D. Alexander, Surveyor General of Hawaii during the monarchy years.

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.
