High-quality hand-printed and hand-colored reproduction of an antique map of the Americas by Janvier in 1784. Features include a decorative cartouche depicting flora and fauna of the Americas, and the Sea of the West in northwestern North America. Made using a combination of modern technology and traditional methods, wherein an original is scanned, its likeness is digitally etched onto an engraving plate, then the plate is used to print the image in the traditional way, with a printing press. The map is then hand colored. Approx. 12 x 16.5 inches to the printed image edge. Visible plate mark. Some paint and ink imperfections give the map an antique appearance. For other reproductions made in this method, please see the left side bar category "Digitally Engraved Specialty Reproductions".
