Limited edition of 100.

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.
Letterpress print, in black ink. Printed at New North Press in Shoreditch, London.
The overall dimensions of the print are 16" x 20" (40.6cm x 50.8cm). Fits a standard frame size.
The poster is printed on 40gsm Khadi J2 which is acid-free and handmade in the Himalayas from the bark of Lokta, a renewable plant native to the Himalayan foothills.
The poster reads as follows:
