Fine Art Prints



What is a limited edition?


A limited edition, as offered on the easy town website, is the print of a photograph limited to a specific and maximum number of prints. Limited editions can range from 7-777 prints. In most cases an edition is limited to 111 prints.

Furthermore a single photograph can have up to 7 limited editions. That means, overall a photograph is usually available in 777 prints in issued in 7 editions.

In a few cases, like The Cow, a single edition can have 777 prints, which is the maximum number for a single edition. That means a few photographs are available at a maximum of 5,439 prints in 7 editions.

A limited edition is defined by the photograph, the photographs specific format (16-9, panorama, square or others), by the material used for the print (Hahnemühle Torchon paper, Barytpaper or others), and by the production method employed (pigment print, photo print or related methods).

In some cases a photograph is offered in a black & white edition as well as in a colour edition.

The colours extreme prints are an exception, insofar as each colours extreme variation of a photograph is counted as an individual photograph with a potential of 7 limited editions.

To summarise: limiting a Fine Art Print edition to 111 prints means that this photograph with the stated specifications (format, material, print method) will only be printed 111 times.

To add an example, the photograph act 1, 2011 is on offer in two limited editions.

Firstly, as single print and as part of the complete set of wall dissolved in 12 acts. This print has a format of 30 x 20 cm, and it has an overall edition of 222 prints.

Secondly, the photograph act 1, 2011 is offered as part of the title images. This print has a format of 75 x 50 cm and an edition of 111 prints.One image, two limited editions.

There are a number of sets available, 2-20 photographs offered as an assembly. Each individual photograph of a set has its own count with respect to the 7 editions.

Take for example Sensation, 2011. This photograph is on offer as a single photograph (40 x 60) and as part of the limited edition set Barks Medley I, 2011/15/21 (each image: 20 x 20). That means Sensation, 2011 has already used up 2 of its potential 7 editions.


What does 111/222 mean?


Some photographs are available as single photographs AND as part of an assembly.Since the specifications are the same for the single photographs and for those of the assembly, each photograph belongs to the same limited edition. But only 111 prints are available as single print while the other 111 prints are only available as part of the complete set.

This applies to the series wall dissolved in 12 acts, and to some photographs of the series chapter trees.

It doesn’t apply to light dance, because the single images such as rise, 2011 have different specifications to the images in the 15 parts set.


What does 2011/20 mean?


The first year is the year the photograph was taken. The second year is the year the photograph was edited, usually with a special method such as experimenting with colours.


What does 2011/15/21 mean?


This means that images from the years 2011, 2015 and 2021 are included in this set of photographs. This applies for example to Barks Medley I, 2011/15/21.
