What is the name of this style of illustration?

Post by PastExpiryDotCom on Mon 23 Sep - 1:48

Hoping someone can help me out...  does anyone know what this style of illustration is called?  I've seen descriptions of "retro" and "woodcut" but when I google these terms, the pictures are not like the one below.  I'm not even sure what to call the lines that typically are near the  edges... almost like 'speed-lines' you see in some logos.

Yeah we did Linocut in Canada too.  We used some sort of material similar to thick linoleum.  By the end of art class it seemed everyone had at least 1 cut finger.  Probably not done today in our nanny state.
