SwanCon 17 poster

I see that 17 are one of the cons that choose to bicapitalize SwanCon. An A3 poster, photocopied or laser-printed on white paper, single-sided. At the right hand side is an Escheresque drawing of a robot hand holding a reflective ball with distorted image of room and headless robot. The rest of the page contains the following text:
