The woodcut is a high-pressure process in which a relief-like wooden printing block is used to generate graphics; the single graph thus generated is called woodcut. The woodcut is one like the wood engraving and block pressure to xylographers process.
Since the invention of printing the woodcut was the appropriate procedure to illustrate books, as the cliché could be inserted in typographical set and printed together with him in one operation. To prepare the printing block the non-printing parts are of a smooth planed wooden board with cutting blades removed and the raised portions and thereafter dyed printed (high pressure). The impression is made by means of a Handabreibung Falzbeins and Japanese Baren or by a printing press. Quelle: wikipedia
