This is a Very High Resolution image suitable for large or small copies. This is a reproduction and has been edited and digitally enhanced to repair flaws, major stains, etcetera.
This is the slightly DARKER version.
There are two versions posted here, so look them over to see which you like better. When I was editing it I could not decide on the better version, so posted them both. One has deeper color, but the other has more color differentiation. The latter may be a bit lighter though, which some people do not like.
Also in the illustration are views of eleven ships on a smaller scale:
Empress of Japan

It is sometimes hard to see the level of detail that a final product will have. Here are four (4) close up detail views of the actual master file from which the product will be made. Of course, many detail will be hard to make out at any but the largest size print, but this shows the quality of the image itself.
