Individual artistic rendering. In producing new editions of these historical charts, Cornwall Editions has added an artistic dimension to the historical documents.

By printing the charts from negatives taken from the original contemporary proofs, the detail and delicate tracery of the coastline, the rocks and the shallows, the harbour walls and the small towns and villages retain their typical Victorian decorative texture.

The hand-colouring in fine water-colour adds a completely individual dimension. It reflects the authentic colouring of the time but each chart will be unique and numbered by hand, identifying the work and creating an intrinsic value beyond the beauty and historical interest of the work itself.
