woodblk

practiced in Asia for centuries before paper introduction expanded its use in the west.

laws sponsored by scribes and illuminators, prevented the widescale adaptation of woodblock printing for popular consumer use.

as a result, the earliest eviudence of European woodblocking is a nice heiropany - devotional prints of saint figures and playing card backs.

too difficult, expensive to be mass wraught and effect.
this material draws heavily from Chappell, page 8-9
