End the Limited Edition Maddness

Given the controversy regarding the recent Eggleston reprints and the resulting lawsuit I feel it is worth stating again… make one artwork and move on!

I for one find so many issues with this article  and its suggestions that I dont know where to begin….. in the end do what you want but in the days of endless disposable images less is more!

  1. Agree. Limited editions / numbering prints were a way of keeping track of the wear on printing plates / engravings. Given the limited audience most of us might have, it’s seems to be better to create just one print as an original. I destroyed thousands of lithographic posters and greeting cards when the market vanished for another photographer’s artwork.
