G’day all
I’m wondering everyone’s opinions on the relative merits of buying either a Remarque or larger number of signature print.
Which do you think is say better value in the long run?
Point in case I’m looking at a pair of versions of Cold Front by Trudgian.
I can either get the 9 sig version or a 3 sig Remarque..a few of the extra sigs on the 9 sig version I’m not super interested in but know they are a good collection from a value perspective.
So in the big scheme of things re value do you think(not just this specific case) a remarque with limited sigs is a better investment or would you prefer the larger sig count?

I have sometimes bought a print thinking that it will be a long term investment only to find that I can’t let it go because I have enjoyed seeing the image in my drawer and insist on having the thing framed. Most of my wall space is allocated with such prints. I sometimes like to move prints as they fall out of favour even if they go for less than what I purchased them for. I try not to make this a habit and now consider more carefully each purchase. There are also often a large number of prints that people collect, but which do not interest me. I suppose you need to make decisions on your own personal tastes or at least you need to decide why you are collecting.

In my opinion, the art is the chief driver with many signatures available from external sources if that is your interest. Consider that many WWIi signatures on special prints are now matted with the names of aces long gone having never seen the artwork. I will ask an artist for a Remarque and will try to have something unique drawn and pay the extra cash for their effort. I find that this compliments the image more than the signatures. No disrespect to those veterans…… On some occasions because of the unique signature grouping, collection or personality, I will make the effort to obtain that edition of the print.

You do not sound too convinced about the signature aspect.

I would go a custom Remarque with your input into the image and obtain any additional signatures in your own time if that will add value to the image for you. Others may have a different opinion, but I wish to purchase prints these days just for me.

Cold front is a brilliant print, and there was a member offering one to the forum membership just recently with excellent remarques. Have a look in the classifieds……..Nics work is amazing

Happy collecting

Now that’s a difficult question – and I think it’s down to preference-as we know signatories will be gone shortly from our history and that will be that – personally I have never bought for signatories – only for the art – therefore an original piece of art by a top artist is a one off and added to a print makes it special. However any signtories added make it even more worthy. You could always get a remq in the future when you can afford it …

Decisions, decisions….

Regards

Brian

I have the 9 sig version of Cold Front. Originally, I wanted the 9 sig with a remarque, but Nick wouldn’t do it because a 3 sig remarque version was offered. In the end I felt the sigs were more important to me. If you are considering parting with the print at a later date there are no gaurantees a potential buyer will like your remarque. A number of the crew that signed the print have since passed away.
