More about wood engraving and etching illustration
Etching and engraving are two of the oldest forms of human creativity going back to the early printed illustrations of William Blake, further still to classical times and deep into pre-history.
Even when recreated using creative software, wood engraving and etching illustrations carry the traditional feel of handmade artwork. They have an interesting and unique physical quality that speaks of authenticity, which is why wood cut and etched-style illustrations are so popular for projects with a heritage feel in packaging, publishing, advertising, branding, editorial and more.
By varying line thickness, illustrators can control their mode of expression, giving modern subjects a new spin using traditional means.
