    Hi Mary,

    If you click on the link (davidrumsey.com), you can order the print. At $129.95 it’s a bit pricey, and it’s 3.5 feet long!

    You can also download it at the link above and manipulate it as you see fit.  I wonder if I could get this on a t-shirt?

    This is marvelous. If you ever publish it at somewhat less cost, I’d be interested. (Would you sell more, at least to the hobby historian, and make more money in the long run, if you did so?)
