Map of Oz
We offer a framed version of our print of one of the most beloved imaginary lands in chilldren's literature, The Marvelous Land of Oz.
These prints are created by a process called giclee (a French word for spray'). The inks used in this process have a much higher resistance to fading than lithographic printing inks, which makes this kind of printing particularly suitable for prints being used in wall decor.
For those of you unfamiliar with the geography of the Land of Oz, a few words may be in order. This map of the Marvelous Land of Oz was illustrated by Professor H. M. Wogglebug, T. E., in 1914.
It includes familiar and important locales such as the place Dorothy's house fell, Munchkin Country and the Emerald City. However it goes well beyond the geography of the 1939 film and into the world of the many Oz books. One very interesting feature of this map is the little known fact that East and West are reversed in Oz. You will notice that the Munchkin Country is in the East, but is also on the left hand side of the map--while the western Winkie Country is on the right hand side. This may seem most curious, but that is the way Oz is, curious but marvelous.
These prints are made at our location in Seattle, WA. They have a thick, white backing board and are sealed in clear bags. Each is suitable for framing at 11 inches x 14 inches or can be used as is for wall display. Our goal is to bring back to life these wonderful illustrations from old-fashioned, children's books and from early advertising art.
