Limited Edition Prints: Edition 12 published

Limited-edition Print Documentation

Edition 12
2000 August 12

The key image(s) for this edition (these editions) of original lithographs (was) were hand-drawn by the artist on a single Bavarian limestone, which served as the printing element for Edition 11 and Edition 12.  The gray colored flats for Edition 12 were made on an aluminum plate by the printer.  Processing, proofing, printing, and all curatorial work were done by hand by Wayne Kimball in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  Trial proofing occurred in July 2000 and edition printing was completed early in August 2000.

This edition (these editions) of original lithographs is (are) comprised only of the impressions enumerated in the following table.  All other impressions have been destroyed.  Each impression of each image is hand-signed, titled, dated (year), and numbered or proof-designated by the artist.  The printer's chop is embossed into the lower right-hand corner of each paper whose margin is of sufficient size.  The images on the stone and plate have been effaced in such a way as to render the images unprintable in a similar state to those accounted for in this document.

Eleven trial proofs for Edition 12 were printed on various papers, and in various ink colors, and used as referential material for Edition 11 and Edition 12.

Note that in the following table, column eight is labeled Roman, not Arabic, because this edition is numbered I/L through L/L.
