Woodblock prints are best known in art from Japan and East-Asia. The best-known prints belong to the ukiyo-e tradition, but the technique of carving into wood and making prints from it, has been used for ages throughout the world.
The block prints may resemble linocut prints, although the Japanese woodcut prints are often richer in color and detail. When you look at pieces like the ones from Ohara Koson, you’ll be amazed that these were originally cut into blocks of wood and printed on handmade paper.
