an edition is a limitation on the number of copies in which a work is produced. in printing, the edition refers to the number of prints that are produced from a single surface. in photography, the edition refers to the number of prints of a photograph that are produced from a single negative. in sculpture, the edition refers to the number of pieces produced using the same form. in design, the edition refers to the number of pieces produced of a certain model. the edition of a specific work is traditionally noted in the form of a fraction, with the numerator is that particular work's sequential number in the series, and the denominator is the number of total pieces in the edition. if only one work is produced, the edition is considered unique.

In visual arts, an edition is a set of duplicate prints or casts of a particular image. The types of reproduction that the term edition refers to can be offset-lithography, lithographs, serigraphs, etchings, offset-lithography or cast sculpture.If the number of prints to be produced is unlimited, the edition is usually referred to as an open edition, whereas if the number if prints is predetermined and limited, the edition is then preferred to as a limited edition. These limited edition prints are signed and numbered indicating the sequential number of the print and the edition size. Some states have laws governing how limited edition prints are marketed.
