1754 Nolin Italy
This superior reproduction of the original antique hand colored copper plate engraved map of “L’Italie Divisee en Ses Principaux Etats” was published in 1754 by Jean Baptiste Nolin, Jr. Of particular interest in the title cartouch is the extreme care taken to credit anyone from whom information was gleaned in the production of this map by Nolin, whose father, Jean Baptiste, Sr. was convicted of plagiarizing the maps of de Lisle in 1705. The Italy here presented is very different from the country we are familiar with today. Fragmented into various duchies, states and fiefdoms, Italy was not to become a unified country until late in the nineteenth century.

What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.
Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
