A 1,300-year-old Chinese manuscript with the image of Buddha in flowing black lines is the oldest known woodcut and the starting point for this history of the art form. Written in 1928 by the Scottish painter and art critic Douglas Percy Bliss, this classic study describes engraving techniques and provides artist biographies and personal commentary, ending with a chapter on 'modern' engravers including Eric Ravilious and Gertrude Hermes. This is a reprint of the first edition.
