Printmaking normally covers only the process of creating prints that have an element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting or drawing.
Linocut is a printmaking technique 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. 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.
