The 199 Steps 2015
Whitby’s 199 steps on a warm summer’s night looking across the Esk and on to the Heritage Coast, there is little wonder that this is one of the most iconic views North Yorkshire has to offer with so much to see and so many stories behind the landmarks. On the top of Kyber Pass stands the statue of Captain James Cook, looking down over the River Esk where one of his most notable ships was built and sold to the Royal Navy. HMS Bark Endeavour was perhaps the most famous of Cook’s ships, being the first to reach the Eastern shores of Australia where Captain Cook went ashore at Botany Bay. Next to the statue the whale bones stand, a reminder of the town’s historical links to the whaling industry. Although still an active fishing port, as can be seen by the trawlers moored on the quayside, they now support the town’s most famous industry; Whitby Fish And Chips. But this historical fishing port is also renown for being the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula and it was these steps Dracula climbed before hiding in the Abbey at the top. Whitby Abbey is probably the most famous of the landmarks and has seen everything from Viking raids to the Dissolution of the Monasteries. It was also home to England’s first poet Caedmon and a memorial stone cross now stands in St. Hilda’s churchyard on the East cliff, with the North Sea to the right and the Esk Valley and North Yorkshire Moors to the left.

All canvas prints bought from us are made using the Epson 9900. Its 11 ink printer system maximises the ground-breaking Epson Ultra Chrome HDR Inks with their massive colour gamut and DMax.
Colours are exceptionally vibrant with outstanding realism and have a lightfast rating of over 200 years. Our canvases are printed at a staggering 720 x 1440 resolution, which we could not take full advantage of using a canvas of mediocre quality. That is why the canvas we use is imported from the USA, for its superior print quality and longevity. It is a 450 GSM matt poly-cotton canvas that is OBA free and will not yellow overtime like an inferior canvas, it is also archival certified for over 100 years (click here for certificate).
Once printed our canvases are given a day for the ink to cure, it is then protected by a revolutionary Matt varnish to help protect against UV light scuffs and abrasion. Once dry the canvas is carefully hand stretched around a 38mm thick kiln dried solid pine frame and then tensioned using wedges. Finally the back is sealed and a stylish bronze hanger is fitted for ease of hanging.
