About this artwork: Giclée print of a vintage 1940 map of the Laurentians Mountains area ski trails in Quebec, Canada. This area has always been a popular ski destination. Famous ski trails such as the Maple Leaf, developed by Jackrabbit Johannsen, are seen on this map.
Herman "Jackrabbit" Smith-Johannsen, CM (June 15, 1875 – January 5, 1987) was a Norwegian-Canadian supercentenarian who gained widespread recognition for being one of the first people to introduce the sport of cross-country skiing to Canada and North America. He is recognized by certain groups within the cross-country skiing community in Canada for the many contributions he made to the sport and for his personal longevity.

The giclée art prints produced by Kitchi Manitou Artworks are made in Canada on professional photo and fine art papers, using the best archival pigment inks for the highest standard of excellence. They are produced individually one at a time as museum grade art reproduction should always be.
This is the most advanced fine art and photography technique of reproduction available today. Because of its exceptional resolution, color accuracy, permanence, and quality, it has become the print standard for museums and art galleries around the world for the reproduction of their finest artworks.
Using this method of reproduction enables us to make sure each print meets our strict quality control so as to give our customers the assurance they have acquired an exceptional artwork that will last for decades.
Since the artworks featured on Kitchi Manitou Artworks come from various sources, in a variety of dimensions, we have opted for 1 standard paper size:
• 13 x 19 in (33 cm x 48 cm)
Original artworks are always printed in their entirety, within these sizes, and offered to the nearest paper sizes in relation to their ratio. Please be aware that as dimensions of the printed images vary according to the original ratio size (or proportions), borders will also vary in width on the prints depending on the original artwork proportions and may need to be slightly trimmed before being framed.
Image size is obviously smaller than paper size as we leave a border on each side for easier framing and manipulation. Although we have standard print sizes, exceptionally some artworks may be available in other non standard dimensions. Please refer to the items’ Print Options to know the exact sizes available for each artwork.

Our Fine Art and Photographic prints are offered on the following types of paper:
• Matte prints are made on 100% cotton, archival and acid-free pH balanced media in ultra smooth finish. They are also available for a selection of smaller size prints, on mould made fine art paper with a gentle texture surface.

Kitchi Manitou Artworks Seal
Prints and photographs we produce are embossed with the Kitchi Manitou Artworks seal of authenticity in the margin or on an information sheet on the back of the print. This ensures that you have acquired an original print produced by Kitchi Manitou Artworks workshop and that it is of the highest level of quality. A few prints we sell are provided by third parties and do not show the Kitchi Manitou Artworks seal. They are of the same quality level as our own prints. You can buy them with confidence.
