Wood blocks were the earliest form of printing when the Chinese carved their letters into wood around 300 AD. Europe was a little bit behind in establishing printing and illustration as opposed to manuscripts carefully scribed by monks.
I’d forgotten just how hard carving into a wooden block is….it’s hard believe me. The block will. however, last forever just about, you could easily print off Rembrandt’s wood-blocks now.
The third pic is the block being carved, the fourth pic is the block inked up.
