A printing technique that involves carving text in relief upon a wooden block. When inked, the impression is transferred to paper. The oldest known printed works were produced by this method in Japan and China during the 8th and 9th centuries. This method of wood-block printing appeared in Europe in the 14th century and eventually inspired Johannes Gutenberg to create type pieces out of metal.
As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one
that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It
handles well and is very flexible.
This easel is so easy to set up, adjust, and break down. I'm buying a second one for my middle-schooler. It works great with boards, canvases, and both sizes of frame/tapestry loom that I use regularly.It is perfect for working outdoors on uneven ground.
