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.

"A General Chart"

Published by Strahan and Cadell, 1784

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 
2016


This superior reproduction of the original copperplate engraving is from Cook's Last Voyage, originally published in 1784 by Strahan and Cadell of London. It traces the tracks of the Endeavour, the Adventure, the Resolution, and the Discovery during each of Captain Cook's three voyages of exploration.

As a record of Cook's historic Pacific discoveries, this is the most accurate and important world chart of the 18th century and, as such, is considered the first modern world map.

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.
