Facsimiles & Museum Editions
All Edges Gilt specializes in Museum Editions and Facsimiles of antique prints.
Facsimiles are prints made with production overseen by the artist or publisher. These are carefully made, using an original design by the artist, typically a metal plate. Prints made this way exhibit nearly identical characteristics to the original work and are usually more rare because they are produced in limited numbers.
Museum Editions are high-end reproductions, meaning they are done in-house and not supervised by the original artist or publisher but are made in such a way as to faithfully resemble the original work and therefore be of "museum quality."
Our AEG editions are referenced against our own collection of authentic, antique prints which allow us to make decisions about color and paper tone and material. We employ the giclée process, and use archival inks and 100% cotton-rag paper. Unless otherwise noted, we typically make reproductions the same dimensions as the original work. When print margins allow, AEG editions are authenticated with a blind stamp embossing in the bottom corner.
