Rayures eau forte imprimée en taille d épargne
The technique used to make the prints showcased on this site is called relief printing technique, as you have to cut the wood or linoleum around the drawing in order for the image to appear in relief. This relief will then be inked, and used to make the basis of the final image, like in letter printing or stamping.In other words, you save your drawing, and get rid of the extra material around it. It is also called ""taille-d'épargne" from the French "'épargner" (saving) and "taille" (cut).
