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.

"Kauai Government Survey"

Published by U.S. Government, 1878

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This beautifully-reproduced map of "Kauai Government Survey" was originally surveyed by W.D. Alexander, Surveyor General to Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalani in the last decade of the monarchy. It was first published in the Annual Report of the United States Geological Survey of 1878.

Of special interest is the compass rose showing magnetic deviation, as well as a chart of mileages from Nawiliwili to various other points on the island.

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.
