Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

Russia has a proud history of space exploration, much like the United States of America. In the 60's and 70's the USSR sent more than a dozen probes to flyby and land on Venus while competing with the Americans to put a man on the Moon. Venera 9 was launched on June 8, 1975 and consisted of an orbiter and a lander. The orbiter was the first spacecraft to orbit Venus, while the lander was the first to return images from the surface of another planet. I think it is this imagery that is important to us as human beings. We can calculate and measure but we really want is to see and feel. — Chris Adams
