Relief printing, a classic printmaking method, elevates the image from the printing block surface. Carving removes excess areas, leaving a raised design. Ink is applied to this surface, and paper is pressed onto it, transferring the image. This technique enables numerous reproductions while maintaining the unique, handmade essence of each print.
