Laurie & Whittle's 1813 New Map of London Reproduction Fine Art Print Wall Decor
This London map, originally published in 1813 By Laurie And Whittle's is a reproduction giclee print of the original called Laurie And Whittle's New Map of London with it's Environs. Despite the use of 'environs' in the title, this is a plan of what is regarded as the center of London, with Islington, the Isle of Dogs, Camberwell, Chelsea and Kensington.
The improvements include: the proposed site of Vauxhall Bridge (opened 1816) and Vauxhall Bridge Road; Waterloo Bridge (opened 1817) and Waterloo Road; and Regent's Park is laid out, but without the surrounding terraces. The fourth image shows an enlargement of the explanation that describes the map. These vintage map giclee prints make outstanding works of art, and are sure to spark some lively conversations with friends and family.
They also make a great gift item for those who appreciate vintage geography in their home or office.
NOTE: There are a couple of very demure pencil markings that were there when the map was scanned and it only adds to the vintage quality of this piece.
OUR GICLEE PRINTS
Your giclee print will be created using archival, fade-resistant, pigment inks, heavyweight, museum-quality paper and a 9-color process fine-art printer to ensure the most vivid, detailed and long-lasting print. To prevent fading, as with all prints, please never expose them to direct sunlight. To protect your investment, we recommend that you mat and frame your prints.
There is no mat or frame included with this print other than the high-quality basswood frames we use to create our ready-to-hang gallery wrapped canvas prints.
This London map giclee print is offered in the most popular sizes to make matting and framing a breeze with your local retailer. The print you will receive will measure exactly the dimensions you ordered. It is designed in such a manner that all of the main image will fit well within the standard mat that comes with frames that you can purchase at many retail stores.
All of our prints are carefully positioned with an approximate 1/8 inch border on all sides for matting and framing, although this may vary slightly based on the size of print you order and the size of the original image. If you would like a different size border, or need to know the exact border size, or a borderless print, just let me know when you place your order.
MATTING & FRAMING TIPS
Select the PRINT SIZE for your needs, then add the mat dimensions to the print size to determine what your final frame size should be. When you plan to mat a print, the rule of thumb is to order your PRINT SIZE one size smaller than your frame size--this allows for the addition of the mat of your choosing. For a statement wall, bigger is better, both with the print size, and the frame size.
