Frequently asked questions
What's The Difference Between Buying Limited Edition And Open Edition Prints?
Limited edition prints As the name suggests, only a limited number of prints will be made available for purchase. Normally the editions available from Anna Curtius Art include 10-50 prints, once they are sold no more prints will be available The exclusive nature of a limited edition print effectively raises its value and, therefore, its price.
Open edition prints Unlike limited edition prints, open edition prints may be endlessly reproduced. Because there's no limit to the number of prints that can be made, an open edition print is priced lower than a limited edition print.
