noun and verb. / əˈdiSH(ə)n /
1). An edition is a run of prints, sculptures and other replicable works of art. Some are “open editions,” meaning that the art can be infinitely reproduced. But most are “limited editions,” meaning that there is a limited amount of genuine works of art in the series.
2). A work of art from an edition is also called an “edition.” Prints and sculptures from the same edition are identical but they can be precious. They are usually signed and numbered by the artist. Buying editions is a great way to start buying art and supporting artists. They can reach wider audiences at lower, more accessible prices and they are each unique works of art in their own way.
