Question: What do you mean by woodblock in the context of print technology?

Answer: Woodblocks were made by cutting out different shapes from wooden blocks. These blocks and shapes were dipped in ink, and then were pressed against a paper to print the required design and syllable. This kind of print was done in China in 594 AD. The craftsmen did a peculiar thing - they folded the paper on one side and then printed on both the sides. These were the Accordion books. The printing was sponsored by the imperial state.
