What do you know about ‘wood-block’ printing?
Answer:

  • This was a system of hand printing.
  • Initially books in China were printed by rubbing paper against the inked surface of wood blocks.
  • As both sides of the thin, porous sheet could not be printed, the traditional Chinese ‘accordian book’ was folded and stitched at the side.
