Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut 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, and then impressed onto paper or fabric.
The actual printing can be done by hand or with a printing press, such as an Albion or a Columbian press.
In printmaking, limited edition is a fixed number of impressions produced on the understanding that no further impressions (copies) will be produced later.
Most imited editions is normally signed by the artist in pencil, and numbered as say 67/100 to show the unique number of that impression and the total edition size.
