[Living Tradition] Deep cuts


Before printed materials, Koreans used to engrave drawings and letters on wood, stain it with ink and stamp it on paper to record important documents. An exhibition at the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul, allows visitors the chance to witness this engraving tradition. The exhibit ends Sept. 18.
