Linocut is a printmaking technique in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The matrix can be used to print several copies of the project (edition). In any case, linoleography is a low-print printing technique and, because of the manual printing process, each print will be slightly different from the others.
