A Limited Edition book is usually released in a limited print run, suggesting exclusivity. Limited Edition books are then individually numbered to indicate both the copy number and edition quantity.
It is common today for Limited Editions to be on-runs of trade editions. In this case, several hundred book blocks are added to the trade edition run and then bound with special cover material and finishes.
‘75 of 250.’ Limited Editions are sometimes signed by the author and often sold in slipcases or special presentation cases.
