Monotypes vs Monoprints is a feature about anything that is original or recurring in books. The basic idea is that there are some themes in fiction that are completely original and begin on an unetched canvas, so to speak, like monotypes. Whereas, the more common underlying themes that occur in books are akin to monoprints. I’d love to receive any feedback or suggestions that anyone may have regarding this feature.
