Description

For the last few years I have watched Star Gazing Live where Brian, Dara and a whole host of other big brained super humans often broadcast from Jodrell Bank Observatory. Every year I have the same thoughts. Firstly, ‘I wish I had concentrated more in science’ and secondly, ‘I really should do a print of that place, it’s awesome’.

Well, the latter is now done. This is my take on Jodrell Bank featuring the impressive Lovell Telescope. I’ve gone with a 1950’s feel to this print given that was the era the telescope was constructed. I remember recently being wowed by seeing Jupiter, Venus and Mars all shining together one evening so I’ve put those in the print as a little reminder. The eagle eyed amongst you may also spot the ISS whizzing across the sky.

I hope this print appeals to the guys and gals with a sense of wonder, a curious mind and to anyone else that wishes they had paid more attention at school.

Delivery times and backorders

I print to order everything except A1 posters, and can usually dispatch within 48 hours of an order being placed. I have to order A1 posters on demand from an external printer, so these take a little longer.

DELAY IN DISPATCHING ORDERS: Please note that I will only being visiting the Post Office once a week while the UK is in lockdown so please only order if you are flexible on timescales. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. Stay safe, with love, Georgina.
