We are pleased to bring you Harriet Quimby, a visually stunning print of antique advertising art originally used to sell cigars in the early 1900's.
Outstanding, almost three dimensional image featuring Harriet Quimby, the first woman to gain a pilot’s license in the United States. Probably done as a tribute after her tragic death in a plane crash in Squantum (Quincy) Massachusetts. This fantastic example from the Townsend Archive has been painstakingly restored by the artists at Elm Graphics from an original lithographer's samples, using modern digital graphics software while maintaining strict adherence to the “stipple art” method utilized by the chromolitho artists of the period. Boston Ink and Paper recreates these timeless artworks at 300 dpi on Canon Pro Premium Matte paper in 12 colors, using Canon Lucia inks. This 12″ x 18″ poster fits into standard mats and frames.
Harriet Quimby is part of our Réplique line of giclée prints, selected for outstanding subject matter, spectacular art and makes for a great conversation piece that goes well with a number of classic decor themes.
