A monotype is a unique print, i.e., there is only one of them. An image is made on a surface, in Rosie’s case with rollers, rags, brushes, or sticks on to plastic, and the image is passed through the press. The ink is transferred on to the paper. Occasionally there is sufficient ink remaining on the plate and a ‘ghost print’ can be made and worked on to make a separate unique print. It is not possible to replicate a monotype.
