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

Went to the market today with Allan and ruby to get some fresh produce so Allan could make his soups and sauces yummy the veggies all looked so fresh and bright you cant help but buy them.
The veggies are grown and sold by a community of Mongolians that live on the outskirts of Hobart.
Ruby enjoyed the atmosphere and the street performer, she joined with the crowd clapping and shouting the count down till he did his big finale and to top it all off the weather was beautiful, I got lots of new photo for new prints Allan got is super fresh ingredients and Ruby didnt have a tired tantrum!
