IDBURY PRINTS

In English usage, engravings on wood are divided into wood engravings (made on the end grain) and wood cuts (made on the plank side, with the grain). Wood engraving is a form of relief printing (unlike other engravings, which are intaglio). The engraver works on the end grain of a hard wood, typically box, using a graver to cut away the areas that will not print. Wood cuts, made on the plank side of the wood, are generally more bold and robust than wood engravings. The difference between the two does not seem to us particularly important in terms of print collecting, as opposed to print making, and as the distinction is not made in either French or German (where either an engraving or a cut is simply a gravure sur bois or a holzschnitt) we have decided to include both under the heading wood engraving. Our holdings include work by Frans Masereel, Eric Gill, Marianne Clouzot, Paul-Émile Colin and many members of the French Society of Wood-Engravers; we also have colour wood engravings by Edmund Evans after Walter Crane.
