News about Woodblock

Woodblock

Woodblock making is considered as one of the oldest printing methods. Woodblocks typically feature images, texts, inscriptions and seals that are transferred from a sheet of paper onto blocks of wood. This art expression dates back to China in 868 AD and was then adopted by Japanese artists who've gained outstanding recognition due to the high-quality and exquisite aesthetics of their works. The famous Japanese woodblocks in the Ukiyo-e style emerged in the 17th century and stand out for their rich, vivid colors, intricate designs and minimal simple lines made exclusively by hand. The most common themes that are depicted in woodblock prints include natural landscapes, samurai, animals, courtesans, legends and tales, floral motifs and many more. Whether you're a savvy collector or starting a new collection, this woodblock selection has something special for you.
