Which is worth more artist proof or limited edition prints?

The Artists Proof (AP) is the first print that the print-maker makes to the standard the artist is happy with, all subsequent prints should reach this standard. AP's are therefore #0 in the edition and worth more (sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, depending on the artist) than the numbered limited edition prints that follow.

What is the difference between artist proof and printers proof in etchings?

For Art: these prints would be made the print shop to use for adjustments in colour, positioning, etc. A number of these or all of them may be discarded, a small limited number (2 or 3) that meet the artists standards might be pulled aside and marked PP and each one would be unique on it's own. Once the colour, press or screen positioning etc. have been adjusted the next step would be the AP (Artist Proof) further adjustments to the image might then be made by the artist before or in lieu of a final numbered edition.

Is a printers proof more valuable than an artist proof?

Speaker as an ex-printmaker and lithograph/intaglio printer from many years ago... a printer's proof is the first one that comes off the press that meets the artist's approval for saturation, tonality, density, evenness of printing, etc.This is held as the printer's proof by the printer (who is customarily not the artist) and is used as a benchmark for printing the edition. All prints must meet the level of quality of the printer's proof. Those that don't are scrapped, and printing continues until the edition is filled... plus a few extra for artist's proofs, personal gifts, etc.The printer gets to keep the printer's proof, and the artist usually signs it. I got a bunch of them.In France, the printer's proofs were marked "bon a tirer", which basically means "good to pull".When I was going to school in Italy, us American students took a fancy to inscribing our printer's proofs with "prova di stampa", which was the customary designation for printer's proofs (if you were Italian).Buy it because you like it not to make money on it because you will probably won't. Own about 100 all signed by the artist, lower the production number the better. Paid an average of $10 per print and they list between $300- $1200 each.

What does EA mean on a lithograph?

"E.A." (Epreuve d'Artiste, the French term for artist's proof), "A.P." or "H.C." were originally conceived to mean a small part of a printed edition to be presented to the collaborators of the artwork or for the personal use of the artist. These were usually not more than 10% of the size of the regular edition. However, it's amazing how many prints we see with the annotation "A.P.", "E.A." and "H.C.". Certain prints have these notations on as many as a thousand prints.
