Linocut-printed wallpaper gallery

Linocut, also known as lino print, is a variant of block-printing in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface


As it has no directional grain or variation, lino gives a different effect to printing with wood. A design is cut into the linoleum surface, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing the parts to be printed. The lino sheet may be mounted on a wooden block, and is inked with a roller to impress paper. You can see British designer, Marthe Armitage, printing on the video, 'Back to the drawing board' and Hugh Dunford Wood explaining his own lino-printing technique here
