Woodblock printing research

Woodblock printing is one of the oldest printing techniques. It requires precision and lots of time dedicated to the process of carving. I wanted to find the limits and possibilities between time consuming woodblock printing and fast production of riso printing, by combining the two methods for creating illustrations. The images followed a cyclic process of being carved, woodblock printed, scanned, riso printed and then repeating the process again, as many times as possible.  At the end I created an experimental book composed of four parts, and each part has as cover the carved wood.
