16th century reproduction from an early Ortelius plate (later plates removed the westward bulge in South America). High quality historical map giclee on your choice of canvas or archive quality paper. Superior to traditional lithographs, giclees provide a crisper image, using a wider range of colors that are longer-lasting with such high-resolution that they provide what appears to be 'continuous tone', rather than tiny dots. The result is a faithful reproduction that is virtually indistinguishable from the original. Giclee printing is available on 100% cotton artists canvas with UV protective coating or archival paper which is 100% cotton, acid-free with matte finish.
