About Wood Engravings

Wood engraving is an age-old relief print-making method used for creating small and highly-detailed images.  It was traditionally used to illustrate books, with blocks being the same height as the letterpress characters that formed the text.  It is particularly well-suited to achromatic graphic artworks, with strong contrasts (lights and darks) and areas of textured shadows.
