Treasures come in all shapes, size, form, and function. Take for example, Gavel & Block’s latest round of back-to-back auctions happening this Jul. 28.

Their upcoming two-part auction revolves around ‘editions’ or multiple original collectibles: unique objects produced in a series or large quantities. These items were made available to a larger market but still retain a level of exclusivity from limited quantity or production.

The first auction, Editions I, offers a collection of fine prints and sculptures. Some of the items up for auction include:

Prints by renowned local artists
