linocut

A print made using a block or plate of linoleum, a durable synthetic material once used for flooring. The linoleum is cut away using a sharp tool,  as in the woodcut technique, leaving the design to be inked standing in relief.  A linocut differs slightly in appearance from a woodcut, because  the linoleum surface is softer and has no grain.  Video here.
