This Victorian-Era chart on celestial bodies is from the pages of HP Lovecraft’s favorite book. Titled "Chart of comets, star clusters and nebula" it was engraved in 1856 by W. G. Evans for Burritt's Atlas to Illustrate the Geography of the Heavens.
I have two charts from this book - see the other chart here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/115034441
Print on canvas with wood poster hanger. Solid walnut or white oak pieces are compressed together by vintage brass ball thumb screws to securely hold the top and bottom of the print. Easy to hang with brass ring and your choice of twine.
+ Solid brass hardware holds prints more securely than magnets. Brass ring prevents twine from wearing and breaking. Brass hardware has a vintage patina.
+ Walnut and white oak wood are naturally beautiful and don't need to be finished with toxic stains or varnishes. Walnut is finished with organic hemp oil and beeswax and white oak is unfinished. Both are sourced from sustainably managed forests.
+ Walnut and white oak are natural materials and there may be variations to wood grain and tone. Walnut ranges in tone from pale warm brown to dark brown and sometimes will have a lighter sapwood in it. I allow the sapwood to show only if it is aesthetically pleasing. White oak is a mix of browns and tans ranging from beige to dark brown. See second to last photo for options.
+ "White Oak + Canvas" and "Walnut + Canvas" options include your choice of hemp, black or bakers twine with brass ring for hanging. Please include your choice in the buyers note to seller at checkout. Hemp Twine is the default if no selection is made. See last photo for options.
+ "Canvas Only No Frame" option is for the canvas print only without the wood hanger frame.
+ 12" and 17" prints are printed on linen based canvas and 24" to 59" prints are printed on 370gsm cotton based canvas. Both are high quality canvas that will not yellow over time as they do not contain optical brighteners and are acid-free and age resistant according to ISO 9706 (museum standard according to galleries and museum’s longevity requirements).
+ Canvas and assembled poster hanger are shipped together but the canvas is not installed to avoid damage to the canvas. Installing the canvas is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the canvas edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your canvas is ready to hang.
+ 24" x 26" size in Walnut is pictured with Hemp Twine.
+ shipped in 100% plastic free packaging - cardboard box, tissue paper, kraft paper and kraft paper tape with cornstarch adhesive.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you make your poster hangers with brass hardware instead of magnets?
Gluing metal to wood is notoriously difficult and requires some heavy duty toxic glue to get them to stay firmly in place. Even then the magnets are not likely to stay glued as wood is a natural material that expands and contracts with the heat and moisture. Eventually they will fall out and then all you are left with are some sticks! Additionally, magnets can lose their strength over time. Brass hardware will never fail.
I do not offer wholesale as I find that business model works best for mass produced goods and my products are not mass produced! I am a one person shop so I prefer to offer my best price all the time to everyone.

I love this. I am a science and space junky with a love of vintage that goes back to my grandparents. Looks great in our living room. Quality print on canvas. I love it and expect it will last for a long time.
