Printmaking consists in carving a block which once inked and pressed on a sheet of paper will form a printed picture.
The block allows printing several engravings, which are all considered as originals since they are all slightly different, unique.
There are multiple printmaking techniques. Relief printing implies carving the wood or linoleum block with a sharp tool (gouge).
The carved areas will not be inked and will reveal the paper after printing. The design is printed in reverse and the block can be compared to a stamp (the word stamp comes from the Italian stampa print, press).
Some slight variations of colour can be observed from one print to an other in one edition. These are normal and contribute to the charm of the craft! When you buy a print, do not hesitate to examine all the series of an edition to choose the one you like best.
