Woodcut Art Process

Following out visit to the Arthur Ross Gallery and looking at the works of Frankenthaler, I had become interested in the process of making woodcut art. On The Metropolitan Museum of Art Site I found a clear explanation of the process, accompanied by clips to depict each step. This had been one of the oldest forms of printing, involving carving and pressing wood to get the final image. Besides woodcutting, the link also provides information on other forms of printing.
