Dawson wrote: "Of all ships, the clipper thrills me the most. There is terrific romance in a sail. No yacht or any other boat has the beauty of a sailing ship bowling along in a spanking breeze - the hum and thrill of the sails."
The clipper ships thrived in the half century from 1840. Built originally for the profitable tea trade from China, clippers were tall, elegant and much faster than contemporary merchant ships. They were long and thin, with sharp bows, rigged masts and billowing sails. Originally created for trade, the glamour of the new ships caught the attention of the public and soon the ships were racing each other across the world’s oceans in an attempt to set faster and faster times for their shipping routes, in what was becoming a smaller and smaller world.

Each print is hand numbered, accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and is numbered to match the print. The editions are limited to 1880 copies. Other canvas sizes are available on request.
