Wood carving

Graphic letterpress printing technique where the drawing applied to the printing form protrudes from its surface. Non-printing elements are cut out of the form with knives and gouges. The resulting raised parts are then dipped in ink and print the drawing on paper. Other forms of wood carvings are wood engraving and linocut.
