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

The Space Age dawned with the successful orbiting of the very first man-made satellite, the Soviet Union's Sputnik 1. About the size of a beachball with spring-loaded antennae, it contained a simple radio transponder that beeped incessantly- to western ears, ominously- as it basket-weaved it's orbits about the earth. It was the spur that launched the race between Cold-War superpowers, the U.S and CCCP, for dominance in space. — Brixton Doyle
