Original Print (linocuts)

A linocut is a printmaking technique where an artist carves a design into a sheet of linoleum, leaving the uncarved areas to be inked and pressed onto paper, creating a print. This method is a variant of woodcut but uses linoleum, offering a straightforward process for creating bold and textured images. Artists can produce multiple copies of the design by repeating the inking and pressing process, and can achieve multicolored prints using multiple blocks or the reduction method, where successive layers are carved and printed from the same block.
