What Are Limited Edtions?
A limited edition print is an original image limited to a predetermined print quantity. The edition is often signed by the artist and individual prints are always hand numbered and titled. The numbers on the print denote the individual piece number in the edition over the total edition size. For example, 5/400 is the fifth print in a series of 400. All of our editions are limited to 200 prints in each size.

What Is A Giclee?
(and why you should have some....)

Giclee (pronounced "zheeclay), from the French for "fine spray", made its debut in 1985 and exemplifies one of the finer aspects of digital printing. Microscopic ink droplets are precisely positioned onto a surface, usually watercolor or a similar fine art paper. Giclee prints offer incredible saturation, depth of color, and a beautifully finished print that captures the essence of the artist's intent. Recent tests show that these prints can have a life expectancy of 100 to 200 years.

Giclee prints now represent a natural elevation in the art of print making. Numerous examples of giclee are found in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum, The Museum of Modern Art and in many private collections and galleries. Recent auctions of these prints have fetched $10,8000 (Annie Leibovitz), $9,600 (Chuck Close), and $22,800 (Wolfgang Tilmans).

Traditionally, photographs have been collected in editions of silver-halide or gelatin based prints. These processes are rapidly becoming obsolete. This year Eastman Kodak announced that it will no longer produce B/W photographic paper.
Ten years ago they discontinued the production of all dye transfer paper and chemicals. For 30 years I did all of my printing in a darkroom using many of those processes. It is thrilling to now be able to create prints that show exactly what I saw in the camera and to guarantee you long-lasting museum quality work.
