I know there are no "hard and fast" rules for placing values on woodlbock prints, but I wonder if someone has some "rules of thumb" or general guidelines. It's generally not too difficult to find a reference for a pristine or "very good" condition print, but how much should one deduct (percentage-wise) for worm holes, paper loss, thin areas, rubs, fading, and the like? I realize there no easy answers here, but a basic idea of what the thought process is like when evaluating a print is what I'm after.
Thanks, geo.
