A monotype, is a one of a kind, unique piece of artwork. An image is created on a metal, plexiglass or gelatin plate using ink. Then, a piece of paper is placed on top of the inked plate and pressed in usually with a printing press, but sometimes by hand. When the paper is removed from the plate, the ink tis transferred to the paper, creating a monotype. Only one unique image is printed from each plate.  Occasionally a second (ghost) image may be printed but is always different from the first print
