The artist's proof. [Gordon Cotler] -- "Until Cassie Brennan's murder, nothing could have persuaded ex-NYPD cop turned artist Sid Shale to get back into the investigative groove. But now he's got a motive to save his own neck. Get this from a library! The artist's proof. [Gordon Cotler] -- New York policeman Sid Shale retires to Long Island to devote himself to art, painting nudes. When one of his models is murdered, local police name him a suspect and he must clear his name. Although artists are no longer pulling prints from the press to “proof,'” or inspect them for quality, during the printing process as they did in Rembrandt’s time, the artist’s proof is still an important and valuable piece in the world of art ically, artist’s proofs were proofs pulled from production so the artist could check the quality of the print.   —Robert L. Wolke, author of What Einstein Kept Under His Hat and What Einstein Told His Cook. "Proof, this irresistible book from Adam Rogers, shines like the deep gold of good whiskey. By which I mean it's smart in its science, fascinating in its complicated and very human history, and entertaining on all by: 4.

  Over time, the artist proof became a standard in printing of a limited edition. Also known as A/P Prints, they are outside the regular edition and are equal in quality to the edition and signed as Artist Proof or A/P by the artist. In the early days of printmaking, printer's plates would wear down over time. Because of this, the first prints off the printing press were the highest quality and were designated “artist’s proofs”. The artist’s proofs were considered to be the best prints within the edition and often the artist .   And yet “The Artist’s Way,” in its twenty-five-year life span, has been mostly immune to the typical scorn that shrouds so many similar books. It’s a cynic’s self-help book Author: Carrie Battan. The Art of Proof can also well serve independent readers looking for a solitary path to a vista on higher mathematics.” (Tom Schulte, The Mathematical Association of America, November, ) “This is an undergraduate text to extend, in a deeper and formal way, the usual initial knowledge of mathematics.

This book offers an introduction to the art and craft of proof-writing. The author, a leading research mathematician, presents a series of engaging and compelling mathematical statements with interesting elementary proofs.   At least when it comes to art collecting, the "Artist Proof" is still a print, with a far more limited run, sometimes 'inspected' by an artist perhaps with his signature on it. Once the proof run is ok'd then the regular production of prints is run. Depending on the difference in price between an AP and regular print decide. Its purpose is to allow for final edits. The proofs can also help to build and maintain buzz about a book before its official release date, generate some early reviews and have potential readers eager to get their hands on the title. A galley proof or uncorrected proof may still have errors or areas open to change. Proof Portfolios (8x10” or 10x13”) are spiral bound and finished with a black or white background. Pages are printed on your choice of E-Surface or Metallic Paper. Choose between 4, 6, 8, or 12 images to a page/5(60).
