What better way to celebrate Stephen Hawking’s 75th birthday than a limited edition commemorative book?

To mark the occasion, the Isle of Man Post Office has released Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking: 100 Years of General Relativity – a 32-page glossy tome that features quotes from the two famous physicists.

Only 100 copies of the book have been published, each of which is numbered 1 to 100, and every one has been signed by the Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, who played Hawking in the hit film The Theory of Everything.

Each book also includes two sets of six stamps that were released by the Isle of Man Post Office in July 2016 to commemorate 100 years of Einstein’s general theory of relativity

The first hardback was presented to Hawking on his birthday on Sunday. The remaining books are now available to buy from the the Isle of Man Post Office, with the proceeds going to the Stephen Hawking Foundation.

So how much will it set you back? Just a cool £250.
