Images printed from a raised, inked pattern cut into a wooden or linoleum block.
Only the raised parts of the block are inked with a roller and the carved out or incised areas are left empty. This is opposite to intaglio printing where only the grooves are inked.
Any image printed from the raised portions of a cut, etched or cast block. Examples are wood- and linocuts.
An image printed directly from the raised surface of a block, from which the white areas of the design have been cut away. Wood is the most frequently used material although acrylic or rubber, etc. can also be used (see woodcut).
any method of printmaking where the surface to be inked is raised or in relief
Any print in which the image is printed from the raised portions of a carved, etched, or cast block. A simple example would be a rubber stamp. The most common relief prints are woodcuts. The term "relief print" is used when it is not clear which kind of relief printing has been used (photomechanical or hand carved, for example).
Also known as block printing, this is the oldest form of printing. A simple example of this method is the rubber stamp.
A print from the inked surface of a block or plate where the non printing areas have been cut away. Woodcuts and linocuts are relief prints.
A print in which the non-image areas have not been cut away and only the surface of the block or plate is inked and printed. Included in this category are woodcuts (the most ancient form of printmaking) and linoleum cuts.
A printing technique in which the parts of the printing surface that carry ink are left raised, while the remaining areas are cut away. Woodcuts and linoleum prints (linocuts) are relief prints. A type of printing process in which a print is produced from the relief carving of a metal plate or wood or linoleum block.
A relief print is an image created by a printmaking process, such as woodcut, where the areas of the matrix (plate or block) that are to show printed black (typically) are on the original surface; the parts of the matrix that are to be blank (white) having been cut away, or otherwise removed. Printing the image is therefore a relatively simple matter of inking the face of the matrix and bringing it in firm contact with the paper; a printing-press may not be needed as the back of the paper can be rubbed or pressed by hand with a simple tool.
