An Artist Proof, also known as an AP, is created a result of the proofing process that each new title goes through before being published. During this process, up to 20 AP’s are created each with their own unique composition and variations in contrast, brightness and saturation. These proofs are used to identify the print that is closest to the original piece, and the one which will be used for the ongoing print run of the title.
These unique and subtle changes to the artwork make each AP a one-of-a-kind print and therefore highly sought after. Artist Proofs are available for open and limited edition titles.
