Historical


Historically, blockprinting has first used wooden planks as an engraving medium.
From 1860, when the invention of linoleum by Frederick Walton, lino was gradually used as an alternative to wood, more flexible and easier to work. Today, in addition to wood and linoleum, there are a variety of materials that are more or less flexible, more or less thick. Each of these media has its specificities but the engraver has the freedom to choose according to the work to be carried out: printing in press, fine work or, on the contrary, in large areas of color, manual printing, “stamp” printing, etc.
