Hi Forum Members,

I was wondering where the worm holes are coming from on the wood block prints ? Is it because some tiny worms ate the paper, or what type of insect is responsible ? Does it has anything to do from poor storage ?

Also, I have noticed that these worm holes are frequents on prints from the late 1700's, all the way to the mid 1850's, maybe up to the 1860's. My second question is until what time frame would you see prints with worm holes ? Have you seen prints from the 1880's, 1890's or 1900's with worm holes ?

Looking forward to know more on that matter,
