Three different poster designs were created and produced - one titled "Curiosity, Live from MARS", a conceptual piece highlighting the scientists and the Mars rover. The second "MARS Science Laboratory", shows the delivery of the rover to the surface. And the third, "Insatiable Curiosity", showing the rover on the surface of Mars. The edition was designed by artist Leighton Kelly and printed by Rob Day of Zeno Design on archival paper using a large format ink jet printer with pigmented archival inks.
Of the original twelves copies of each poster design printed, three sets (one of each design) were given to the JPL Scientist who commissioned the project, two sets to other people at JPL, one set was kept by MDTV, one set by the artist, and one single poster was sold to an engineer at JPL. In addition, MDTV retained one copy of the triplet offered here (of 2 produced) - designed in a smaller format for compact space hanging - see all three images in a nice format!
Kuenzig Books purchased the entire remaining production run from MDTV - four sets plus two additional posters and one triplet. We have (as of this writing) one remaining complete set, the triplet and a few individual posters. They will not be reprinted.
NOTE: Since these were envisioned strictly as internal motivational posters, they were not signed or otherwise marked as a limited edition on the posters. (Inventory #: 28050)
