What are Editions!? 🤔
Editions in the art world refer to a series of prints or reproductions of an original work of art. Editions are typically created by artists or publishers to make their artwork more widely available and accessible to a larger audience. Editions are typically numbered and limited, meaning that there is a specific number of prints or reproductions available, and once they are sold out, no more will be produced.
Types of Editions
There are several different types of editions in the art world, including:
Originals are the first and unique version of an artwork created by an artist. Originals can be any type of artwork, including paintings, sculptures, and mixed media pieces. The value of an original is determined by its rarity, condition, and the artist's reputation. Originals are typically the most valuable and highly sought after pieces in the art world.
Limited editions are series of prints or reproductions of an original work of art that are limited in number. Limited editions are typically numbered and signed by the artist, and the number of prints available is usually specified. The value of a limited edition is determined by the rarity of the piece and the artist's reputation.
Open editions are series of prints or reproductions of an original work of art that are not limited in number. Open editions are typically less valuable than limited editions, but they are still highly sought after by art collectors and enthusiasts. Open editions are often used to make an artist's work more widely available and accessible to a larger audience.
Artist proofs are special editions of prints or reproductions that are set aside for the artist. Artist proofs are typically numbered and signed by the artist and are considered to be more valuable than other editions. Artist proofs are usually limited in number and are highly sought after by art collectors and enthusiasts.

How our story began
"Do you ever feel like you're caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to buying art? You admire beautiful pieces in galleries, but the price tag is just too steep. On the other hand, the print stores offer endless options, but they lack the soul and personal connection to the artist.
That's why three friends from the creative and music industries decided to make a difference. They've created EDIT1ONS, an alternative that brings affordability and authenticity to the forefront.
At EDIT1ONS, you'll find original and limited edition artwork from emerging, established, and commercially successful artists. Each piece is hand-selected to bring a touch of creativity and inspiration to your life. Whether you're starting your art collection or looking to add to it, we have something for you.
With EDIT1ONS, you don't have to choose between affordability and authenticity. You can have both. Join us in our mission to make art accessible for everyone."
