Additional Information

Stampa:
La stampa è un processo per la produzione di testi e immagini, tipicamente mediante l'impiego dell'inchiostro su carta e di una pressa da stampa. Spesso viene svolto come processo industriale su larga scala ed è una parte essenziale dell'editoria.

Woodcut:
For the woodcut refers to the engraving of images and short texts on wooden tablets, the matrices, then inked and used to create multiple copies of the same person, on paper and on silk, by printing with the press. Given that the silografia is a type of engraving in relief, it is not difficult to insert the array of wood in the forms of typesetting, printing at the same time text and images. This feature of the silografia makes the printing process very cheap, in fact, will mainly be used for the "lyrics". A historic printing house specialized in popular prints was that of the Remondini of Bassano del Grappa.
