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

Easters coming !
Here are some print I have been working on for Easter printed them tonight to see what they would look like, I am pretty happy with them ,I have never worried about printing festive stuff before now let alone in pink or blue !! heaven forbid I use any other colour than black while printing lol
Got my prints back from the framers today and they look amazing, I think the people at the Ecohaven will be happy with them and i really hope someone likes them enough to buy them, now that would be fantastic !
