🇬🇧 Woodblock printing is a technique where an image is carved out by hand out of one or several blocks of wood, after which a piece of printing paper is pressed against the block. This technique allows for detailed image printing in various colour ways. The grain of the wood is partly transferred to the paper, which gives the woodblock print its characteristic look.

🇫🇷 L’impression gravure sur bois est une technique où une image est découpée à la main dans un ou plusieurs blocs de bois, après quoi un morceau de papier est pressé contre le bloc. Cette technique permet d’imprimer des images détaillées dans différentes couleurs. La texture du bois est en partie transférée sur le papier, ce qui donne au gravure sur bois son aspect caractéristique.

🇳🇱 De houtsnede is een grafische hoogdruktechniek waarbij met de hand een afbeelding wordt uitgesneden/gegutst uit één of meerdere blokken (betrekkelijk zacht) hout. Vervolgens wordt een stuk papier tegen dit paneel wordt geperst. De techniek maakt het mogelijk om gedetailleerde afbeeldingen in verschillende kleurgangen af te drukken. De textuur van het hout is deels zichtbaar op het gedrukte resultaat, wat de houtsnede een karakteristiek uiterlijk geeft.
