Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking
Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing
The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine
I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

Yup I'm back into cross stitching ,after seeing a flower fairies cross stitch I did for a friend I just had an erge to stitch again so I started with this little one but i have a larger one on the go to put in Rubys room but I just like to do little ones while I am in the middle of bigger things makes me feel like i have accomplished something and this way i tend to get less bored with it !
Not alot of printing of drawing going on here at the moment though I guess I have to get back in to the swing of allan being back at work and having ruby to myself again.
