About linocutLinocut is a printmaking technique where designs are carved into linoleum. They are inked with a roller or brayer and then pressed onto paper, either by hand or with a printing press, to reveal the design. Due to the nature of the linoprint process, each piece will have it's own little variations and character, meaning it's unique to you.
