Editions should consist of 12 impressions numbered 1/12 to 12/12. Ten of the prints will be redistributed to other participants in a random selection process, and we will mail you 10 random prints following the same process. The two remaining prints from each edition will be retained and sold as a fundraiser for PrintAustin.
