There are phrases that best describe a technique, a process. And this is the case! "Printmaking like sex is not just a reproduction" is a common phrase between engravers and printers, its author is unknown but it is such a brilliant and fun summary of everything behind the printing process that I could not avoid giving my interpretation by graving every component of the print and composing it inspired by typographic techniques.

The linoleography is an artistic printing technique of images and graphics on paper, cardboard or cloth by the use of a matrix obtained for engraving on linoleum. The term "linocut" comes from the name of the media (linoleum) and from the greek "grapho" (write).
Each linocut print is printed to order.Matrix is totaly carved by hand by myself with original illustration . Each print one comes out a little different due to handmade printing process.
