    The woodcut process was widely used for popular illustrations in the 17th century, but no major artist employed it. In the early 19th century it was replaced by wood engraving, which reproduced paintings and sculpture more easily and accurately than did the midth-century development of photoengraving, however, wood engraving lost its popularity. At the turn of the 20th century the art of wood-engraving enjoyed a flourishing revival among English artists. This volume showcases five decades' worth of magnificent black-and-white illustrations, with finely wrought images ranging from scenes of animals and rural life to episodes from literature. An informative history of the art is included.
