The Eyes of Texas - 1918
The Eyes of Texas are Upon You!
1918 was a year not to be forgotten. The "war to end all wars" came to an end, Max Planck won the Nobel Prize for Physics, and Congress established time zones.
At the University of Texas, the Longhorns went undefeated (9-0), racking up a combined score of 194 to 14, claiming the Southwest Conference football championship.
And Julian Elfenbein turned The Eyes of Texas into this beautiful icon.
"Elf" was the editor of The Cactus for 1918, and a man who knew what looked good on a page. He went on to a long career in business journalism.
This is a print that will make your favorite Longhorn smile.
It's 18 by 24 inches, so it can fit in a standard size frame without a mat if you choose.
- 18 by 24 inches
- Printed on the highest quality paper
- An instant heirloom
The paper is acid free, heavyweight with an elegant ever so lightly textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
