A linocut is a printing method. A linocut is a relief method where the block used for printing is made from high-grade linoleum. Cutters are small gouges fitted into a handle like nibs into a penholder.

'Knight, Death and the Devil' by Albrecht Durer, a line engraving carried out in 1513, is probably one of the greatest masterpieces in this method. Note his control of almost velvet-like tone areas.
