Woodcut—occasionally known as xylography—is a relief printing artistic technique in printmaking in which an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show 'white' are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in 'black' at the original surface level. The block is cut along the grain of the wood (unlike wood engraving where the block is cut in the end-grain). The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas.

And here is my project in my university. I'll tell you about Vietnam's story - a story of culture as well as my ideas for this project. I love Vietnam and love Western countryside in Vietnam. It's my source of inspiration to make all better.

A floating market is a market where goods are sold from boats. Originating in times and places where water transport played an important role in daily life, most floating markets operating today mainly serve as tourist attractions. In Viet Nam, there is Cai Rang, Cai Be, Soc Trang, Phung Hiep, ....- they're extremely attractive to tourists. 
So, I want to bring a minor part of my country to you.
