Product description:

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.

 

"Chart of the Sandwich Islands"

Published by Royal Geographical Society, 1868

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This map, published by the Royal Geographical Society in 1868, is a finely-wrought example of mid-19th century English cartography. Apparently published to accompany the paper by the Bishop of Honolulu, this map is very similar to the one published in Manley Hopkins book Hawaii, a decade earlier.

Interestingly, this is one of the last published maps to feature Captain Cook's appellation "The Sandwich Islands" for 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.
