What is meant by the printmaking term the edition of prints?

It's like a time-line. At this particular time, this number of prints were issed on this date, of this year, etc. The prints can be limited, so that no others will be available until the reprint is scheduled by the artist or their executors. Thus 1st editions, 2nd editions, etc. In printmaking, an artist uses a system by which there can be more than one original. A good example is silkscreening. Using a screen and screen filler, an artist makes out the shapes they would like to print, fills in the rest of the screen to keep ink out, and passes ink over the screen, transfering it to any paper or fabric or surface beneath. This can be done multiple times before the next color and shape are chosen and prepared to be printed on top. There are a certain number of prints made at a time.

What was the print making during the Spanish period in the Philippines?

Spanish printmaking in the 17th century had been dominated by Flemish and French influences, and no printmaker of importance emerged during the period. In the 18th-century artist Francisco de Goya, Spain had not only its first truly great printmaker but also the only printmaker whose etchings rival Rembrandt's. Moreover, he is the most eminent satirist printmaking has produced. His visual comments on human folly, war, and religious persecution are devastating. Goya created four major cycles of prints. The first, Los caprichos (published 1799; "Caprices," or "Follies"), consists of 80 enigmatic prints commenting on all phases of life.

What is the chief advantage of printmaking over other media?

Artists who use printmaking as a medium do so for several reasons. One of these is the type of images that they are able to produce by using a printmaking technique. Artists who use woodcut are able to get sharp contrasts between different tones by using that method. If they want work with a strong visual impact and a lot of energy, woodcut will give them that.

Some artists also like printmaking because it allows them to produce multiple copies of their work. Albrecht Duhrer used printmaking for this purpose. He was able to share his work with a wider audience. Contemporary painters may produce limited edition high quality prints of paintings they have done for the same reason.

When was printmaking started?

In the beginning, before the printing press, printmaking was not considered an art form, rather a medium of communication. It was not till the 18th century that art prints began to be considered originals and not till the 19th that artists began to produce limited editions and to sign their prints along with the technical information necessary to authenticate the work.

Engraving goes back to cave art, executed on stones, bones and cave walls. The duplication of engraved images goes back some 3,000 years to the Sumerians who engraved designs on stone cylinder seals. Academics think that the Chinese produced a primitive form of print, the rubbing, as far back as the 2nd century AD. The Japanese made the first authenticated prints, wood-block rubbings of of Buddhist charms, in the late-middle eighth century.
