xylography

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.

The hardboard core of this Mixed Media Canvas Board means that it does not bend or warp at all, it takes layers of wet media and holds flat. This means I can lean my small pieces on a shelf without framing. In addition to the rigid core and the heavy, substantial feeling of this quality product, I really appreciate the fine weave of the surface that is much more like linen than canvas. The linen weave does not show up in photographs as well, unlike cheaper canvases. This very fine weave linen-like surface takes both thin and very thick mixed media like a champ, everything looks BETTER and BRIGHTER on this surface compared to cheap canvas panels. Upgrade today, you won't regret it!

The yellow marker is ideal for marking passages in your Bible. The ink does not bleed through the page like other markers. It's the best I've found for this use and not everyone carries it. Thank you for providing what I need.
