It is unusual that libraries accept loose prints. Did you have any problems with getting them to accept?

Another problem with libraries was this. A good handful of prestigious libraries I solicited refused my offers of the bound, hand printed book or loose prints, as their collection policy prohibited them from accepting original works of art.
