Customers have been universally impressed with the quality, beauty and detail of these posters. Pictures do not do them justice! This is a new type of poster that we call content intensive posters. Each provides a comprehensive overview of the subject presented through extraordinary images and fact-filled text. They are designed to appeal to people who enjoy reading books, watching informative and/or educational shows on cable television and subscribing to such magazines as "National Geographic", "Smithsonian" and "Scientific American". They have great educational value and are cherished by teachers, students and professionals.
All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subect. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject.
All posters measure 24" x 36". This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
