MONOTYPE IN A FEW WORDS:
Originating as early as the fifteenth century in Europe, the mono (one) type (print) is a unique "one of a kind", original print. Often called the "painterly print", it is a simple, direct transfer of an original painting or drawing, using ink, paint or crayon, sometimes incorporating collage, from a print plate to paper. If enough pigment remains after the first "pull" a second or third impression might be "pulled," which is called a "ghost". The ghost plate can also be reworked creating rich visual textures. The image is reversed in printing and in its spontaneity rarely prints as it appears on the plate. When the ink fuses with paper in printing, the monotype offers a capacity for high color saturation unique to the process, or can reflect the delicate residue of the ghost.
