What is an
Artist’s Edition? Artist’s Editions are printed the
same size as the original art. While appearing to be in black &
white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as
possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example,
you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art,
editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as
drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original
