The Metropolitan Museum of Art explains the process of Japanese woodblock printing:.

"To create a woodblock print in the traditional Japanese style, an artist would first draw an image onto washi, a thin yet durable type of paper. The washi would then be glued to a block of wood, and using the drawing's outlines as a guide, the artist would carve the image into the wood's surface. The artist would then apply ink to the relief. A piece of paper would be placed on top of it, and a flat tool called a baren would help transfer the ink to the paper. To incorporate multiple colors into the same work, artists would simply repeat the entire process, creating separate woodblocks and painting each with a different pigment." Amazing and quite beautiful.
