"There is no edition. I don't know who makes editions of photographs? Commercial photographers, maybe? I just walked downstairs to the gallery where I have about a hundred photographs on the walls. Many photographers do not like signing on the photographic surface. (From now on I will sign on the back in pencil.) Not a photograph in my collection (Frederick Sommer, Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Clarence John Laughlin, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Paul Strand, Art Sinsabaugh, etc.) indicates an edition. If a million people want a color print of Lorine Niedecker, they should be allowed to have it at modest cost. In US 1999 we will be lucky to find 50 takers. Lorine Niedecker—who is she? Is she that bimbo on FOX tv every Thursday night?" 

- Jonathan Williams, from introduction to his photo archive on the Jargon Society website
