What is an ‘AP’ or a ‘PP’?
‘AP’ and ‘PP’, both short for ‘artist proof’ and ‘printer’s proof’, was a term used to describe a print created before the production process of the main edition in order to evaluate the final product and receive approval to begin printing the full run of units. Oftentimes, these prints may have had slight variations or details which were changed before the main edition was produced. Traditionally, these prints were to be held onto by either the artist for his personal archive– coining the term ‘artist proof’–, or the print manufacturer– hence the name ‘printer’s proof’.
Over time, APs/ PPs have come to have more value because of their uniqueness and for the fact that many of these prints would remain within the possession of parties involved, to be given away as gifts or saved as tokens of their own creative progress. Today, many artists will add to APs with special hand-embellishments to make them more distinctive and special, driving up the rarity effect that much more.
