Every map gives back
Every map is a work of art. So we print and frame them accordingly.
Each map is produced on our 12-color gicleé printers using premium inks to ensure a highly detailed, fade-free piece.
We make all of our prints with museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free archival paper that’s rated to last 100+ years.
No pressed wood, no veneer. Every custom frame is handmade from Walnut. Please allow 3-4 weeks for your frame to be delivered.
Spark conversation with a custom canvas gallery wrap, offering enhanced depth and texture with a bolder look.
We believe that preserving our environment and natural resources will create a brighter future for all. That’s why a portion of every sale goes directly to supporting organizations helping to protect our land, water and air from human impact.
Originally published in the 1884 edition of the "The Fisheries and Fishery Industries of the United States", this reproduction print of the Sand Smelt or Silver Sides and California "Smelt" or Pescadillo was drawn by H.L. Todd. It was part of the first book in a multi-volume series produced by George Brown Goode, the famed ichthyologist (fish scientist), Smithsonian museum administrator, and U.S. Fish Commissioner. He managed a large staff of scientists, researchers, and clerical employees to produce this monumental work on American Fisheries. We are happy to make available the amazingly detailed drawings included in the first volume of the series as reproduction prints.
