Monoprint

Monoprint

Monoprint is a print from a reprintable block, but printed in such a way that only one of a kind exists, e.g. the print may include unique hand colouring or collage.

A monoprint is one of a series—therefore, not wholly unique. A monoprint begins with an etched plate, a serigraph, lithograph or collograph. This underlying image remains the same and is common to each print in a given series. Other means of adding pigment or design are then employed to make each print in the series slightly different. The series of monoprints has a limited number of prints and each is numbered.
