This is a 'Giclée' reproduction on museum quality paper of an antique map showing the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
The spread is taken from Blaeu's Atlas novus, which contained maps and descriptions of the world as it was perceived in the mid 1600's. Scotland and Ireland was added to volume five which was first published in Amsterdam 1654, in Latin, Dutch, French and German editions, with a Spanish one added in 1659. No English edition was ever added to the atlas which came bound in massive tomes in with solid wooden covers and gilt edging. This was the very first complete map of Scotland, containing approximately 50 maps.
A2 - 42.0 x 59.4cm (16.53 x 23.39 inches)
Your print will be produced as a long lasting 'Giclée' print on luxurious Hahnemühle fine art paper using museum quality pigment inks this option will remain 'lightfast' (no noticeable fading and/or changes in colour) for a minimum of 60 years. I specialise in creating such archival prints for artists and use only the most respected fine art paper mill in the world for my paper stock; Hahnemühle. "Giclée" equals a remarkable quality print.
I believe I create the most accurate, luxurious fine art prints. I've worked in commercial printing for 10 years and creating art prints is my passion and livelihood. I'm certain you will be happy with your purchase and delight in it for years. This is a truly special reproduction print.
Each of the beautiful maps in my Folksy shop were digitised out of a passion for archiving these beautiful, historic works. I run a specialist fine art print company in Edinburgh and creating long lasting reproductions of artists work is my passion. I thought it'd be great to share this works with the world.
Each map is printed to order, you may contact me prior to placing your order should you wish your final print to incorporate a margin or border suitible for framing, or matting.
Giclée in Detail:
'Giclée' is a loosely used term which often describes printing at a high resolution with accurate colour. The term is not maintained by any international body and you should be aware that not all giclée prints are created equal!
I use the term 'Giclée' along with 'museum quality' in promotion and on my website, as it is widely understood and requested by artists when they want high quality prints.
The technical term for what 'Giclée' is Archival Pigment Print.
