Ten years ago today, something truly remarkable happened. In Cambridge, the brilliant physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking received a special gift: a silver-on-black Time Traveller's Invitation limited edition print. A decade later, we want to reflect on this special day in Kite history.
This day involved a meeting between Hawking and Kite’s own Peter Dean. Joined by Hawking’s carers, a lively conversation unfolded over a few hours in Hawking’s Cambridge office, not only about the print but also their shared roots in St. Albans and the enigmatic concept of time travel.
Our limited edition print was more than just a piece of art; it was a symbol of hope and scientific exploration. The copy gifted to Professor Hawking that day now lives in London’s Science Museum, helping to preserve his legacy.
Hawking’s boundless curiosity and perseverance in the face of adversity continue to inspire us all. Our Time Traveller's Invitation remains a symbol of that unforgettable meeting, a reminder that extraordinary connections can happen when you least expect them.
