This has been our most popular world map reproduction for over 10 years. The Bleau World Map was originally released by J. Bleau in 1665 and has turned into the most popular reproduced antique world map in many countries. The images in the 4 corners represent the 4 seasons. This map is printed as Giclee on Artist Canvas. Final size is 36×48. Canvas is shipped rolled in a durable shipping tube. Canvas stretching, if desired, can easily be done upon receipt. Due to shipping difficulties and high damage rates, we cannot ship stretched canvas art.
