Katsuyuki Nishijima Limited Edition Woodblock Print 64/500
Up for sale is this original, limited edition, Japanese woodblock print by Katsuyuki Nishijima. It is titled ?Dyer in Takehara?. It is number 64 of a 500 print run, with no more ever to be printed.
Limited edition and hand signed, hand titled, and hand numbered by the artist in pencil in the bottom margin. It also shows the artist?s red Seal in the bottom right hand corner. Nishijima used this stamp to indicate the quality of the printing was up to his standard.
Limited edition means that ? in this case ? only 500 copies were ever printed. By contrast, 1st edition prints are not numbered, and 1st edition means exactly that. 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc editions are produced until demand dries up. It is interesting that many un-numbered prints are sold as ?1st Edition? prints.
