Lomberg is the world's most experienced designer in creating messages for other times and other beings.
The Billion Year Portfolio includes twenty-four signed and numbered 12"x15" Giclee prints. Each image is explained in a detailed caption showing the reasons why this particular image was included in Voyager's portrait of humanity, with an afterward written by Frank Drake - the world's foremost expert on SETI !
