Linocut is a form of relief printmaking. A piece of lino (linoleum) can be mounted onto a piece of wood and then a design is carved into the lino using different shaped gouges. The carved lino is inked using a brayer and a print is made by placing a sheet of paper on top so the ink is transferred to the paper. Pressure is applied to get an even transfer of the ink by either running the linocut block and paper through a printing press or using a burnisher (often a spoon). This technique allows multiple prints to be made from the same linocut.
