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

more new blocks for printing
here are some more little block I have been working on I was asked to print up some gift tags to go with baby gifts and these are what I came up with, what do you all think?
Actually that's not entirely true the one with the heart, I did for Allan because he had gotten some wonderful news about his composing and was asked to play at a local festival and I was very proud of him and wanted him to know how much I love him, so I printed this and put it around the house with messages written on them hehe but all the rest are gift tags!!
