Artist Proof (A/P)

When a photographer releases a new image as a limited edition print, test prints are made, often in different sizes or on different types of paper before an edition is created.

These pre-edition prints are known as Artist Proofs.

The number of artist proofs created is usually 10% of the size of an edition i.e. if an edition is 50 there is likely to be 5 artist proofs.

Often once the edition is sold out, these numbered or un-numbered Artist Proofs are sold for an end-of-edition price.

Being customised or rare they are often  highly collectable.
