The Silk screen works and giclee works have the edition numbers of Hideki Kimura's handwriting.
Edition (ED.) means "Limited Edition". And we call the "limited number" edition number (ED.No.).

In Ki-Yan Artwork, the edition numbers written by Hideki Kimura are attached on the back of the frame. 
They are expressed in fractions such as "18/50". 
(The denominator shows the number of same works.)
The numerator is not necessarily the order in which it was printed.
We check each of the works printed from the same plates and eliminate any defects. Finally only carefully selected works are given the ED.No..
It does not mean that the smallest number is most valuable.
