Product Description

“Cooktown Days” Lithograph

“Cooktown was, for a few brief years, the second most important port in Queensland. Situated on the coast north of Cairns it was named after Captain James Cook and who beached the Endeavour there in order to repair it after it had struck the Barrier Reef near Cape Tribulation. After his visit nothing else happened until 23 June 1873 when James Venture Mulligan arrived on the Palmer River and found gold in payable quantities. The town of Cooktown was founded as a port to the goldfields and soon thousands of hopeful diggers were landing there and heading off to the Palmer as fast as they could travel. The town grew rapidly and became quite a substantial settlement until gold gave out. When this happened it was deserted almost as it had been founded…”

These lithographs have been produced using an advanced printing process called PIXEL LITHOGRAPHY. This is not a photographic or offset reproduction process.

This unique printing process has been researched and developed over time to specifically meet the demands of the fine art community. The colours are lightfast and are printed onto the finest 100% rag paper (acid free) – unlike ordinary paper made of wood chip in which the acid yellows and corrodes the paper over time.

Every print is individually made – they are not mass produced. One of the major strengths of this process is the ability to capture the fine detail and colour nuances.

The artist inspects, numbers and signs the lithograph in pencil and supplies a certificate to confirm the authenticity of the work. This is called a LIMITED EDITION. The lower number indicates how many lithographs have been produced, after which the master is destroyed. The upper number indicates where this particular lithograph sits in the overall number printed.

Strictly limited edition lithographs are eagerly sought after by collectors, and increase in value as do the original paintings.
