and typically titled "Artist Proof." –Artist
proofs are the first copies printed and used to indicate the
artist’s approval of color reproduction and other mechanical
aspects of the printing process. Artist proofs are a strong

by the abbreviation AP and are numbered separately; they often
represent 10 percent of an edition and are slightly more expensive
than prints in the regular edition.
