Yellow Cucumbertree

$20.00

Magnolia cordata Michaux 

Yellow cucumbertree is one of the rare members of the Mag- 
nolia Family, its range being confined to the State of Georgia. This 
species has had a peculiar history, having been discovered by Michaux 
in the course of his famous exploration trips in this country in the 
latter part of the eighteenth century, then being lost to science for a 
long period, and rediscovered in the wild in recent years. 

A fine specimen on the grounds of the Department of Agricul- 
ture in Washington always draws much attention, especially when 
adorned with its showy blossoms. The flowers resemble somewhat 
those of the tuliptree, which indeed is a close relative, but the cu- 
cumbertree flowers earlier in the season. 

The specimen sketched was given me by the Honorable Henry C. 
Wallace, at that time Secretary of Agriculture.

Your Print Options:

Poster Print

While this is our lowest priced print, it's still an excellent paper. Inkpress Matte 60 is a acid and lignin free paper. Bright white, and 10 mil. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

 

Rag Print

Inkpress Cool Rag 200 is a 100% cotton rag paper. This is an acid-free, 200gsm, 15 mil, with a smooth and bright matte finish. Excellent print quality at an excellent price. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting. This rag paper is better at dark, rich colors than the poster print.


Hahnemuehle Torchon Print

When you need something extra-special, we recommend Hahnemuehle's Torchon. This is a 100% alpha cellulose, 285gsm, textured watercolor paper that is acid-free. This offers superb image quality and is our favorite Hahnemuehle paper. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

Canvas Print

Our maps are also available as cotton-poly blend canvas prints, ready to be gallery stretched. For the best presentation the edges on our canvasses are mirrored or have the paper color extended around the sides. Canvas prints receive a UV and surface protective coating. Additional canvas is left around the image to facilitate gallery stretching at your local frame shop. Available in two sizes.


Wall Tapestry Print

Especially well suited for long horizontal maps, the image is printed to the edge of the paper. Aluminum tension bars are placed on the top and bottom of the print for easy hanging with a clean, modern design. Bars are easily removable. This format comes in an 18", 24", and 36" wide version.


Fabric Wall Cling

Great for kids rooms or for versatile displays - these Terylene fabric clings are easily repositionable without causing wear or staining to the paint underneath even after long periods of time. Wall Cling images are printed to the edge and are available in three sizes.
