Reproduction of a hand colored bird's eye view of Nantucket Island. Massachusetts in 1881. Bird’s-eye views appear as something between a panoramic view and a map, as though they were drawn by the artist while he was suspended in a hot-air balloon. In fact, they were drawn by hand using, most often, two-point perspective to produce a three-dimensional rendering. The city views are surprisingly accurate and represent a much neglected source for understanding the history of an area.

This image is printed on heavy matte fine art paper with archival inks.

Framing is available. Framed charts include drymounting, UV filtering glass, and your choice of six mouldings, wired and ready to hang upon delivery. All mouldings are approximately 1.5" wide. Please factor in an additional 3" to the listed size for framed items.

This map has been scanned From The ORIGINAL at 600 dpi using state of the art equipment {a Contex Large Format Scanner}. The replica map is printed on heavy matte fine art paper using archival pigment inks. This is one of over 5000 Original maps, charts and posters in our collection.
Many reproduction maps that are available on Etsy are taken directly from public domain sources {NY Public Library, Library of Congress, etc}. Although great for research purposes, these image files frequently suffer from poor color accuracy, lens blur and distortion. The maps in our collection have been scanned from the ORIGINAL, flat, at high resolution and with precisely calibrated color. This allows us to prints replicas that are virtually indistinguishable from the original maps.

Custom sizes are available. If you are interested in a custom size, please let us know through the "ask a question" button in this listing.
