Lisa Middleton, Father of Waters, Mississippi River Map, 5x38" Art Print Only, $36.
Print-Only - NOT mounted or framed. The wood-mounted item is also available as shown.
Artist Lisa Middleton explains her art:
"This reproduction of a rare Mississippi River "ribbon map" was drawn by Captain Willard Glazier to "prove" his premise that the True Source of the Mississippi was Lake Glazier rather than Lake Itasca. Looking for modern day towns on an old map? Many modern-day towns are included in this. It also contains many towns noted no longer appear on maps, like Waterproof...which wasn't!
This is a hand painted historical map reproduction which in it's original state was black & white, yellowed with age and possibly torn or creased. I copy the original & clean it up so I can paint it & then re-distress it so it looks antiquated."
