Monoprinting is a printmaking process in which a drawing or painting, executed on a flat, unworked printing plate or other surface, is transferred through pressure, to a sheet of paper. Recognised as a spontaneous and exciting process, the medium is also effective, convenient and does not necessarily require a press. Only one strong impression can be taken, hence the term monoprint. In this handbook, the authors show how to push the boundaries of monoprinting with various techniques, showing the unique possibilities and showcasing work from around the world.
