Impression



S t a t e   C h a n g e s   a n d   E d i t i o n s
"An impression is a single printing from a plate. One of the primary characteristics of printmaking is its multiple nature--many virtually identical impressions can be printed from the same plate. This production of multiples gives the printmaker the opportunity to create a series of variations on the image--by adding or removing lines from the plate after some impressions have been printed, by inking or wiping the plate in a different way for some impressions, by using a variety of papers. This opportunity for variation and experiment is one of the attractions of printmaking for many artists."
