The edition number was determined by the number of sheets the ink bled through from the possible 500.
The numbering of each sheet corresponds to the position it was within the stack and also determined its value.
The final sheet the ink reached, (furthest from the top) was numbered 1 / 73 and valued at £1, the one above numbered 2 / 73 and valued at £2 etc. The top sheet (the sheet the pens rested on) was numbered 73 / 73 and valued at £73
