I limit my signature editions to very low numbers. For your reference;
EXTRA LARGE PRINTS
- 3 (three) prints per series + 1 artist proof.
- 5 (five) prints per series + 1 artist proof.
My ratiionale for such a low edition number;
scarcity has a value
- The prints you are buying are unusual and uncommon. Low numbers mean the editions sell out. I want you to have something that can no longer be bought.
an example of a 5 print edition;
- prints 1,2,3,4 = US$400.
- print 5 = US$800.
NB: The artist proof will be held until the series is sold out and could then be released at the artists discretion. As my work becomes sought after, I will keep the edition numbers the same, but possibly raise the print prices)
Lastly I would like to add that your patronage is appreciated. From the revenue I make from the sales of my work, I develop new projects that could very well be of interest to you, the collector.
