Modern Japanese prints produced by traditional woodblock printing methods are known as shin-hanga (lit. 'new prints'). Shin-hanga were usually produced by a professional publisher (although some artists acted as their own publisher) who employed highly-skilled woodblock carvers and printers. The artists and publishers that worked in the shin-hanga movement produced woodblock prints that represent a pinnacle in production quality by introducing new innovations such as the printer's manipulation of the baren (the printer's pad) to create decorative patterns and textures, featuring embellishments such as embossing and burnishing, and essentially rediscovering techniques to print lush mica backgrounds.
