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

busy busy busy
spent thursday while ruby was at daycare going around to all the businesses in hobart with my cards, had a bit of interest from children clothing shops and florists and got some orders for more cards but in different colors more earth tones, I will use some of my old blocks of more floral designs to cater for the florists, I will post some photos of the new colors when i am back on my computer Im on Allan's mac at the moment will go back to slumming it on the p.c. when ruby is sleeping. I went to a toy shop in salamanca and the lady suggested i have a stall there at the market she was saying that the council would be the place to call about a temporary site and that they are always looking for people that made handmade stuff i guess they get alot of stalls with second hand stuff for sale, so it's something worth considering and the printing really doesn't take that long to do cos i find it fun
