This map is plate number five in an incredible collection that was produced in 1944 by Harold N. Fisk for a report for the Army Corps of Engineers. Fisk drew in a rainbow of colors the path of past and current flows as the mighty river changed course and flooded over time.
Other plate numbers can be made on request - just add the plate number you would like in the notes at chekout. You can see the other plates (these are the original scans of the maps before color correction) on this web page: http://www.radicalcartography.net/index.html?fisk
This site has also included a composite of all the plates on a map of the US so you can find the map that covers a specific area.
Print on art paper or canvas fabric with wood poster hanger. Solid oak pieces are compressed together by antiqued brass thumb screws and then attached to the top and bottom of the print. Easy to hang with brass ring and your choice of twine or hang directly on the wall.
+ Oak wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests. Oak as an ethical construction material really is quite hard to beat. Having absorbed carbon dioxide throughout its life, an oak tree has already repaid its debt to the environment before it is felled. In addition to this, oak has a longevity and beauty many other materials cannot match.
+ print and assembled poster hanger are shipped together but the print is not installed to avoid damage to the print. Installing the print is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the print edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your print is ready to hang.
+ Hand finished with 100% non-toxic and organic milk paint and wax. You can choose either Raw Oak, Old Oak or Black Oak. Raw Oak has no finish. See picture eight for choices.
+ Includes your choice of hemp, black or bakers twine with brass ring for hanging. See picture nine for choices.
+ Can be hung directly on the wall with no twine via two holes that are recessed so that the head of a nail will cling to the inner lip. Use the back top hanger as a template to mark the two holes, tap in two nails so the heads are 3/8" from the wall and, after installing print, hang on the nails.
+ 17" x 24" size with Old Oak hangers is pictured.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you make your poster hangers with brass hardware instead of magnets?
Gluing metal to wood is notoriously difficult and requires some heavy duty toxic glue to get them to stay firmly in place. Even then the magnets are not likely to stay glued as wood is a natural material that expands and contracts with the heat and moisture. Eventually they will fall out and then all you are left with are some sticks! Brass hardware will never fail.
What is the difference between a paper or canvas print?
The paper I print on is a heavy weight textured art paper. It is very thick and luxurious and looks just as nice as the canvas when hanging.
The canvas is a thick cotton fabric that does not have an acrylic coating on the front like typical printable canvas and so that allows the fabric texture to really shine through on the print. The canvas will offer a little more durability.
I do not offer wholesale as I find that business model works best for mass produced goods and my products are not mass produced! I am a one person shop so I prefer to offer my best price all the time to everyone.
