I agree with Barbara Cox and Ian about monotypes and monoprints, but
monotypes are unique, single, one of a kind. You can always type in a word or
words and press GO to get information about almost anything.

This comes from The Collectors' Guide: Monotypes:
"the time required to make a monotype is the combined years of experience
and knowledge of artist and printer . . . plus 2 hours. All of the techniques
and elements of making monotypes--the amount of pressure from the press, types
of inks and oils used, how they are applied, etc. require not luck,
but tremendous skill, and make the result unique to this process."

This site includes woodblocks and monotypes

This definition is correct as far as I know. However one could be holding a
print that is both a monoprint and a monotype. One could take a piece of
printmaking paper and run it on a plate that was carved, with a matrix, and
than run it a second time on a plate with no cutting, but with an inked
surface. Or vice versa. Say, if you wanted a background for a carved image
you could put ink on a flat plate and run it and than run your carved image.
Would be an interesting adventure in printmaking. Makes me want to take the
plates I am working on and put an image behind them that is from a plexi
surface, sure would be more interestiing!

Marilynn makes a good point about combination monotype/monoprint. You
could have such a combination and it might be a rich area to
experiment in.
Always good to discuss these things, you learn something every day. -
