    A wood engraving is done on the end grain (the rings) of the wood. They are limited in size- usually made from several smaller pieces of wood which are glued together. The tools are engraving tools such as burins which make a very fine line and a highly detailed print. Wood engraving was the primary means of reproduction for newspapers, books, and magazines until replaced by offset lithography.
