    Created by Peter Dean with the approval of world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, this poster is part of a real time-travel experiment.

    Professor Hawking devised an ingeniously simple experiment to prove whether time travel to the past was possible. He held a reception for time travellers, but didn't publicise it until after it had happened. This way, only those who could travel back in time would be able to attend.

    The success of this experiment depends entirely on the invitation poster being seen by time travellers.

    This is a screen-printed poster created in an open edition with a choice of two colours, smoke (grey) or bright citrine (yellow/orange). It has been created from a very high resolution scan of a letterpress printed version and so maintains the same Victorian style and steampunk feel as the limited editions which are available in silver on black and black on handmade paper.

    Buyers of this print may help to prove that time travel is possible.

  • Medium

    Screen print, in either white or black ink.

    Dimensions

    The overall dimensions of the print are 14" x 18" (35.6cm x 45.7cm). Fits a standard frame size.

    Substrate

    The poster is printed on 135gsm Colorplan paper (either "Smoke" or "Citrine") with a plain finish.

"I'm hoping copies of it in one form or another will survive for many thousands of years. Maybe one day someone living in the future will find the information and use a wormhole time machine to come back to my party, proving that time travel will, one day, be possible."

As seen on TV! Our Time Travellers Invitation Poster features on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

It was a great surprise for us to discover that one or our Stephen Hawking Time Travellers invitation prints was seen on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

It featured during an interview with Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård (who plays Tarzan in the 2016 movie) who apparently once snuck into the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York pretending to be a roadie – and had his photo taken with Colbert. Our print is up on the wall there and crept into this shot. The citrine colour steals the limelight nicely!
