I was just going to post this...and you beat me to it yesterday! I obviously am not spending enough time reading links from the internet. ;)

Drat! I tried to use the enlarge link, and it held for only a moment on my computer before falling back to a single screen view. That poster is apparently 54" x 30" in real life.

Checked out the rest of the web site briefly. He's done a lot of interesting stuff, but apparently its all in gallerys and/or exhibitions. No pricing for reproductions of this poster or anything else. Double Drat. Depending on seeing the full view clearly enough to read it, I suspect I'd be awfully tempted to buy a copy of it depending on the price.
Ah, well, c'est la vie. Saved from temptation yet again.

Had a friend post this on another forum:

Subject: History of Science Fiction Print

Thank you very much for your interest in the History of Science
Fiction drawing. Because the image leaked out onto the web ahead of
plans, we have been caught unprepared, but we do intend to offer a
poster for sale very soon. The specifics, size and price, are not
yet clear, as we are waiting for responses form publishers.

Meanwhile, we will save your contact information and get back to
you as soon as we have any news, hopefully later this week.

Thanks again for your inquiry.
