Photos from The Northwood Collection are now available as photo prints on canvas. They come in 2 sizes, Large (A1 - 600mm x 820mm approx) and Medium (A2 - 420mm x 600mm aprox). The canvas is printed in a Duotone colour rather than standard Black & White. The only colour available to the old time photographers was sepia but sepia has a red tone and tends to make details blurry. With the Duotone colour you get the old time colouring and the sharpness of the original Black & White. It looks awesome when combined with a Northwood photo. For examples of Duotone go here to.....
All canvases are custom size because all the Northwood photos vary in dimensions. When a Northwood photo was taken by any of the three Northwood brothers its composition was right out to the edge. In other words they filled the entire glass photo plate with the subject they photographing. Consequently there is no "wrapping" of the image around the side edge of the canvas. The Northwood canvases come instead with a black side edge to preserve the composition balance of the original photo.
All the canvases are delivered wrapped in bubble wrap and then corrugated cardboard. Included is a specially put together pack which includes a photo label which identifies the photo and can be mounted on the wall below the canvas. Also included is a complete kit for hanging the canvas on the wall along with an instruction sheet and a information sheet on the Northwood brothers. The instruction sheet has information about the technical details of the canvas print, how to care for it and suggestions how to hang the canvas on different types of walls. Here is a copy of the Customer Information sheet.......
The Information Sheet is a PDF, and depending on which internet browser you have, you may require a PDF reader. If you do not have a PDF reader you can download this free one.......
