Description

"Stranger in a Strange Land" was a powerful book for me. I love Robert Heinlein's thought experiments: it's 1961, we're at the dawn of space travel, what would happen if a Martian culture interacted with ours?

I created the portrait by typing and retyping the words of Heinlein's classic novel to form a portrait. The process of writing on a typewriter is different from anything else. It's captured her in the texture of the letters, the slight variations in spacing, the typos that come from always moving forward. It's a charming reference to the time and effort Heinlein himself put in writing the book on his very own Underwood. It's fully legible and clear, allowing you (or visitors to your house) to actually read first couple of chapters of the book as they stare at your wall.

This is a digital print on archival matte paper. It's very high resolution, virtually indistinguishable from the original, and will arrive rolled in a tube.

Other format options:
+ Framed & matted: simple black frame, off-white matte and acrylic glass.
+ The original is also currently still available.
