   Deep, deep, deep in space, the multi-species space cruiser Asimov and it's fleet of various support craft have come across a singularly unique artifact floating in orbit around a newly discovered ringed planet system. Many of the crew members with ancestors from the long lost planet of "Earth" insist that there is something very familiar about the design of this structure, though it takes the ship's mainframe history-bot to finally make the connection deep into the past of that planet. However, the question still remains: who or what placed this building in orbit out here. (The Texans of the crew know the whole story, passed down through generations, but they're not telling!)
   (This drawing was originally designed to be run as a series of six covers on the six progress reports published for the World Science Fiction Convention being held in San Antonio, Texas in the summer of 1997. As each new issue of those reports was published every few months in advance of the convention, we hoped that it would gradually dawn on people as they received new issues that all of the covers could be placed to form one gigantic single image. The original drawing was roughed out at full size, then completed one section at a time as the deadline for each progress report came up. It took a total of some two years from the first pencils to the last ink mark to finish the drawing. It is among some of the most detailed drawings I have ever completed.

--Info on the printing process, plus care & feeding instructions--
This is a limited-edition print, each copy signed & numbered by the artist. It is created from a film negative made directly from the original pen and ink artwork, then retouched by the artist, and printed by offset lithography on Mountie Matts paper stock. Mounting and matting materials are either low-acid or acid-free. To maintain the quality of this work, do not display it where it will be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, or to extremes of temperature or humidity. I also recommend that you look at it once it is up on your wall (at least six times a week is considered the minimum), or else it will get sad and lonely, and the tear-stains will make it look less attractive.
