Now that's rather self-serving idiotic answer to a simple question, and
does nothing to clarify the term "woodcut book". Are woodcut books the
name for the books created by lynd Ward or by Frans Masereel, books with
only woodcuts and no words telling a story or are they simply books
containing woodcuts throughout the text?

Curious and waiting for an intelligent answer.
