About The Wave Study #1

A bon a tirer (or BAT) is translated "good to pull".  This impression is used to compare all other impressions against.  Any other impressions must match by appearance and qualitatively in order to qualify to be part of the numbered edition, which in this case is limited to 30 impressions.
