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

Tasmanian symphony orchestra
went out Saturday night without ruby for the first time in ages, we went to see symphony under the stars with the Tasmanian symphony orchestra, it was fantastic although it did get a tad cold.
Heaps and heaps of people there, we got there early to get a good spot, we got a good spot alright I sat on a jack jumper nest and got stung right on the ass I'm now covered in bumps all over my chest from a reaction to the sting and they seem to be getting worse rather than better, I am pretty lucky I only got stung once cos when I looked at where I was sitting the ground was swarming with the little buggers so I got off pretty lightly really.
We moved to another spot, where ants would not be gnawing on my butt and we snuggled up and enjoyed the rest of the night.
When we got home ruby was laying all over her babysitter fast asleep so it looks like we all had a good night !!
