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

brilliant news

Well I was going to post some photos of the little cards, I was going to but I finished and took them to the shop and they wanted to buy them all off me, so I didn't get the chance to photograph any of them. Pretty exciting stuff for me really I was saying to Allan last night when I was finishing them that I was expecting to be stuck with all these baby card and no one to sell or even give them to, boy was I wrong! I really am a completely negative twit sometimes.
Allan got some great news too when we got home he checked his emails and he got mail from Morilla Estate vineyard saying they liked his music and are looking at when they can have him play there yippee this is great for Allans confidence, both Allan and I have really started to get our creative acts together and are finally getting somewhere, It feels really good!!
