Woodcut printing press

Woodcut printing press

Woodcut is a relief printing technique in printmaking. An artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood — typically with gouges — leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts.

Areas that the artist cuts away, carry no ink while characters or images at surface level carry the ink to produce the print.
