The publisher, Eleanor Ettinger Inc., worked in conjunction with Norman Rockwell since 1975 and in total they hand produced 77 original lithographs of his work. All the original lithographs they produced including the Encore Edition were done at the same atelier using the exact same process.
While the process to create the original lithographs was the same, the outcome was different for these 16 pieces that later became known as the Encore Edition. For the first 60 images produced, Rockwell was able to hand sign these pieces but a fall in 1977 left him unable to pencil sign these final editions that he so wanted his collectors to enjoy.
To compensate and provide unquestionable intent and authenticity he not only had his publisher provide the same paperwork as the pencil singed editions but also included extra marking of authenticity and a notarized letter.
As with previously released editions, the Ettinger published original lithographs were produced in an edition of 200 signed and numbered images, with 60 artist proofs. There are 25 deluxe artist proofs on Japon paper. In addition 35 impressions, designated with Roman numerals, were given to the Norman Rockwell estate.
