Relief Prints

“The nature of the human mind is such that unless it is stimulated by images of things acting on it from without, all remembrance of them passes easily away.” – Galileo Galilei

In the relief printing process no printing press is required. The plate, which can be wood or linoleum leaves the desired image on the surface, with the rest cut away, exactly opposite to the Intaglio process. A reduction print allows several colors to be printed from the same plate as the image is successively inked and printed and parts of the plate are reduced, or cut away.
