What is a linocut?

Variant woodcut printmaking technique where linoleum sheet is used to act as the relief surface. The surface is then cut into a V-shaped gouge or chisel design so the raised areas represent a mirror image(reversal) to show printed parts. A roller is used to link the sheet which is then impressed to fabric or paper. A press or hand can be used to do the actual printing. (Image © vesnushka/Shutterstock)
