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

my stuff arrives
Some of my stuff arrived today from my house in Burnie, very exciting I finally have my big map draws to put all my paper in and my book press and a few other things I have been missing desperately!
yaaaaaaaay I feel like I have finally moved properly and not living in two different places on the opposite ends of the state.
I am posting some of my old work i found today amongst all the other stuff, It kind of nice to see how my prints have changed and improved with time
Ok well i tried to add the photos but blogger wont play the game right now so i will add them tomorrow
