Clarification of the terms 'original print' and 'signed':
Punch cartoons were originally drawn on tracing paper and subsequently cut onto a printing plate. An original print is a print made directly from an artist's own woodcut, etching, or other original production, and printed under the artist's supervision. An original print is such irrespective of its intended purpose (high end art to be mounted and framed, or a newspaper illustration). A print taken from a print should not be described as an original print. The process of producing a plate print would, by necessity, mean the destruction of the original piece of art (the drawing). If a non limited edition print is described as signed (or attributed) this will mean that the signature is within the image as part of the print, the print was not signed individually by the artist.
