Hello and welcome to artPause, where Michael Tompsett has combined his twin passions of cartography and art, to deliver original, unique and sometimes surprising interpretations of maps.
The collection is available as satin poster prints, luxury art prints or on stunning ready-to-hang canvas. Satin poster prints are printed on semi-matt coated 250gsm paper. Art prints are Giclee printed on a beautiful, heavyweight (310 gsm), lightly textured 100% cotton rag fine art paper, which delivers outstanding results.
Canvas prints are Giclee printed on to European sourced luxury matt poly canvas (280 gsm). They mounted and hand-stretched on kiln-dried FSC approved pine frames, secured with air-staples on the reverse, and covered with backing tape for protection. Dentate hangers are attached for easy hanging, and corner wedges fitted so the canvas can be re-tensioned if ever necessary.
For superb colour vibrancy, only museum grade pigment inks, guaranteed fade-proof for up to 100 years (indoors or behind glass), are used in the printing process.
