History of Science Fiction Poster
We sold hundreds of these posters since the first printing, and several hundred have pledged to fund reprinting. An appreciation of the piece was published during this Kickstarter by a reviewer who purchased one of the original prints: https://www.theverge.com/2017/4/13/15285524/ward-shelley-history-of-science-fiction-art-kickstarter
Ward Shelley has repainted the piece with vivid colors and additional details for this edition. We're launching this Kickstarter campaign to help us finance the printing while giving enthusiasts the opportunity to pick up one or more of the posters at a significant discount.
Once this campaign is over and Kickstarter funding is available, the printing will take about 2 weeks and we'll start shipping posters immediately. Our aim is to deliver all rewards within the following 2-3 weeks.
For those who are unfamiliar with the "History of Science Fiction" and Ward's other work, take a look at his website: wardshelley.com.

Risks and challenges
We have been through this process before, having produced and distributed hundreds of posters worldwide. Our printer has projected a 7 business day lead time, so starting to ship in 2 weeks is realistic. If demand is larger than our projections, we're prepared to gear up to process rewards expeditiously. If demand is vastly greater, delivery of rewards may run somewhat beyond the 2-3 week window. We will keep all participants informed on our progress.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
