Grace Hopper A4 Print
“The most dangerous phrase in the English language is 'we've always done it this way.' ”
A beautiful wall art print featuring a quote and hand drawn illustration of the inspiring and brilliant computer scientist Grace Hopper. Fondly known as Grandma Colbol - nicknamed after one of the most famous computer programmes she developed - Grace's work transcended the gender barriers of women in computer science at that time. As well as being a Rear Admiral in the US Navy, she also worked on the Mark I and Mark II computers, which were used to decode secret messages sent from enemies of the USA during the war.
Grace has been brought to life in this beautiful hand drawn portrait by the talented illustrator Rachel Gale. The level of detail in these portraits is simply stunning, and Rachel has an incredible way of capturing textures and expressions in her unique style of drawing.
This gorgeous print is suited to anywhere - from the nursery, to the office, bedroom, living room...or pretty much any blank wall space, and makes a fantastic gift for birthdays, graduations, or any special occasion. This quote is also perfect for parents of a new baby girl, who can hang it in the nursery as a modern and inspirational message for their little one.
Our Inspirational Women collection is printed to the highest quality onto 290gsm Hahnemühle bamboo paper - a mixture of 90% bamboo and 10% linen, giving the most stunning, slightly textured finish and making a truly special print. Please note the natural fibre used in this paper gives it a slightly off white appearance.
We also offer our beautifully crafted oak frame hanging kits as an optional extra for £12. You can hang any print in seconds, using the strong magnetic grips, which are designed to work with any poster, print, photograph or even fabrics. These are supplied ready to hang with a fixed cord and a brass headed picture pin. These are poster-friendly; requiring no adhesive tape or pins, this hanger set is infinitely reusable, quick to change and causes no damage to prints or photographs.
